Subject[PATCH v2 1/4] task: Add a count of task rcu users

Add a count of the number of rcu users (currently 1) of the task
struct so that we can later add the scheduler case and get rid of the
very subtle task_rcu_dereference, and just use rcu_dereference.

As suggested by Oleg have the count overlap rcu_head so that no
additional space in task_struct is required.
