rcu: Keep synchronize_rcu() from enabling irqs in early boot
Making polled RCU grace periods account for expedited grace periods
required acquiring the leaf rcu_node structure's lock during early boot,
but after rcu_init() was called. This lock is irq-disabled, but the
code incorrectly assumes that irqs are always disabled when invoking
synchronize_rcu(). The exception is early boot before the scheduler has
started, which means that upon return from synchronize_rcu(), irqs will
be incorrectly enabled.
This commit fixes this bug by using irqsave/irqrestore locking primitives.
