Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 28/30] rcu: Mark rcu_state.ncpus to detect concurrent writes

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

The rcu_state structure's ncpus field is only to be modified by the
CPU-hotplug CPU-online code path, which is single-threaded.  This
commit therefore enlists KCSAN's help in enforcing this restriction.
