Sending the V2 series to address all the feedback that was received in
V1. Apart from that this series adds a patch from Reinette to fix a
global declaration in existing RDT and also fixes some issues where the
prq MSR was not updated when masks or tasks were moved in some cases and
some cleanups.

I merged that pile (after fixing the compiler warnings - SIGH) with the
proviso that

- the cache line issue vs. the default and current pqr state gets resolved

- the worst case latency problem with the smp function call gets addressed

I decided to merge it now so it gets exposure in next, as I'm going to
vanish for my usual summer camp activity for the next 10 days and I don't
want to do that huge thing as a last minute merge post rc5.

Upstream merging into 4.14 depends on the resolution of the open issues.

Thanks for all the feedback. Will send a patch on top of tip for open issues.
