Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 16/30] rcu: Add *_ONCE() to rcu_node ->boost_kthread_status

From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@...nel.org>

The rcu_node structure's ->boost_kthread_status field is accessed
locklessly, so this commit causes all updates to use WRITE_ONCE() and
all reads to use READ_ONCE().

This data race was reported by KCSAN.  Not appropriate for backporting
due to failure being unlikely.
