Subject: [PATCH 4/4] rcu: use gp_seq instead of rcu_gp_seq for consistency

Commit de30ad512a66 ("rcu: Introduce grace-period sequence numbers")
introduce gp_seq in rcu_state/rcu_node/rcu_data. And this field in last
two structure track the one in first.

While the comment use rcu_gp_seq which is a little misleading for
audience. Let's use the exact name gp_seq for consistency.
