Subject[PATCH v2] tracing/perf: Move rcu_irq_enter/exit_irqson() to perf trace point hook

From: "Steven Rostedt (VMware)" <rostedt@goodmis.org>

Commit e6753f23d961d ("tracepoint: Make rcuidle tracepoint callers use
SRCU") removed the calls to rcu_irq_enter/exit_irqson() and replaced it with
srcu callbacks as that much faster for the rcuidle cases. But this caused an
issue with perf, because perf only uses rcu to synchronize its trace point
callback routines.

The issue was that if perf traced one of the "rcuidle" paths, that path no
longer enabled RCU if it was not watching, and this caused lockdep to
complain when the perf code used rcu_read_lock() and RCU was not "watching".

Commit 865e63b04e9b2 ("tracing: Add back in rcu_irq_enter/exit_irqson() for
rcuidle tracepoints") added back the rcu_irq_enter/exit_irqson() code, but
this made the srcu changes no longer applicable.

As perf is the only callback that needs the heavier weight
"rcu_irq_enter/exit_irqson()" calls, move it to the perf specific code and
not bog down those that do not require it.

Changes since v1:

- Moved the rcu_is_watching logic to perf_tp_event() and remove the
exporting of rcu_irq_enter/exit_irqson().
