rcu: Don't disable preemption for Tiny and Tree RCU readers

Because preempt_disable() maps to barrier() for non-debug builds,
it forces the compiler to spill and reload registers.  Because Tree
RCU and Tiny RCU now only appear in CONFIG_PREEMPT=n builds, these
barrier() instances generate needless extra code for each instance of
rcu_read_lock() and rcu_read_unlock().  This extra code slows down Tree
RCU and bloats Tiny RCU.

This commit therefore removes the preempt_disable() and preempt_enable()
from the non-preemptible implementations of __rcu_read_lock() and
__rcu_read_unlock(), respectively.  However, for debug purposes,
preempt_disable() and preempt_enable() are still invoked if
CONFIG_PREEMPT_COUNT=y, because this allows detection of sleeping inside
atomic sections in non-preemptible kernels.

However, Tiny and Tree RCU operates by coalescing all RCU read-side
critical sections on a given CPU that lie between successive quiescent
states.  It is therefore necessary to compensate for removing barriers
from __rcu_read_lock() and __rcu_read_unlock() by adding them to a
couple of the RCU functions invoked during quiescent states, namely to
rcu_all_qs() and rcu_note_context_switch().  However, note that the latter
is more paranoia than necessity, at least until link-time optimizations
become more aggressive.

This is based on an earlier patch by Paul E. McKenney, fixing
a bug encountered in kernels built with CONFIG_PREEMPT=n and
CONFIG_PREEMPT_COUNT=y.
