Subject: [PATCH RFC 5/5] rcuwait: Replace rcu_assign_pointer() with WRITE_ONCE

This suppresses a sparse error generated due to the recently added
rcu_assign_pointer sparse check below. It seems WRITE_ONCE should be
sufficient here.

>> kernel//locking/percpu-rwsem.c:162:9: sparse: error: incompatible
types in comparison expression (different address spaces)
