Subject: [PATCH][XFRM][v2] Replace rwlock on xfrm_policy_afinfo with rcu

xfrm_policy_afinfo is read mosly data structure.
Write on xfrm_policy_afinfo is done only at the
time of configuration.
So rwlocks can be safely replaced with RCU.

RCUs usage optimizes the performance.

Signed-off-by: Priyanka Jain <Priyanka.Jain@...escale.com>

 Changes for v2:
	Re-spined to netdev-next & corrected indentation as suggested by David

 For IPSEC fwd test 
 -On p4080ds (8-core, SMP system)
	 Around 110% throughput increase in case of PREEMPT_RT enabled
	 Around 5-6% throughput increase in case of PREEMPT_RT disabled

 -On p2020 (2-core, SMP system)
	 Around 4-5% throughput increase in case of PREEMPT_RT disabled
