Subject[PATCH v2 7/8] rcu/nocb: Rewrite deferred wake up logic to be more clean
Date
There are 2 things this function does:
1. modify the gp wake timer.
2. save the value of the strongest requested wake up so far.

The strongest is "wake force" and the weakest is "lazy".

The existing logic already does the following:
1. if the existing deferred wake is stronger than the requested one
(requested in waketype), modify the gp timer to be more in the
future. For example, if the existing one is WAKE and the new waketype
requested is BYPASS, then the timer is made to expire later than
earlier.

2. even though the timer is modified in #1, a weaker waketype does not
end up changing rdp->nocb_gp_defer to be weaker. In other words,
->nocb_gp_defer records the strongest waketype requested so far,
even though the timer may or may not be the soonest expiry possible.

For simplicity, we write this logic using switch statements and
consolidate some of the timer modification operations.
