Subject: [patch V4 part 3 11/29] rcu: Provide rcu_irq_exit_preempt()

Interrupts and exceptions invoke rcu_irq_enter() on entry and need to
invoke rcu_irq_exit() before they either return to the interrupted code or
invoke the scheduler due to preemption.

The general assumption is that RCU idle code has to have preemption
disabled so that a return from interrupt cannot schedule. So the return
from interrupt code invokes rcu_irq_exit() and preempt_schedule_irq().

If there is any imbalance in the rcu_irq/nmi* invocations or RCU idle code
had preemption enabled then this goes unnoticed until the CPU goes idle or
some other RCU check is executed.

Provide rcu_irq_exit_preempt() which can be invoked from the
interrupt/exception return code in case that preemption is enabled. It
invokes rcu_irq_exit() and contains a few sanity checks in case that
CONFIG_PROVE_RCU is enabled to catch such issues directly.
