Subject[PATCH] rcu: Force inlining of rcu_read_lock()
Date
It is found that when debugging options are turned on, the
rcu_read_lock() function may not be inlined at all. That will make
it harder to debug RCU related problem as the print_lock() function
in lockdep will print "rcu_read_lock()" instead of the caller of
rcu_read_lock() function. For example,

[ 10.579995] =============================
[ 10.584033] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
[ 10.588074] 4.18.0.memcg_v2+ #1 Not tainted
[ 10.593162] -----------------------------
[ 10.597203] include/linux/rcupdate.h:281 Illegal context switch in
RCU read-side critical section!
[ 10.606220]
[ 10.606220] other info that might help us debug this:
[ 10.606220]
[ 10.614280]
[ 10.614280] rcu_scheduler_active = 2, debug_locks = 1
[ 10.620853] 3 locks held by systemd/1:
[ 10.624632] #0: (____ptrval____) (&type->i_mutex_dir_key#5){.+.+}, at: lookup_slow+0x42/0x70
[ 10.633232] #1: (____ptrval____) (rcu_read_lock){....}, at: rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70
[ 10.640954] #2: (____ptrval____) (rcu_read_lock){....}, at: rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70

To make sure that the proper caller of rcu_read_lock() is shown, we
have to force the inlining of the rcu_read_lock() function.
