[PATCH tip/core/rcu 21/21] rcu: Do any deferred nocb wakeups at CPU offline time

From: paulmck

From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@xxxxxxxxxx>

Because the need to wake a nocb GP kthread ("rcuog") is sometimes
detected when wakeups cannot be done, these wakeups can be deferred.
The wakeups are then carried out by calls to do_nocb_deferred_wakeup()
at various safe points in the code, including RCU's idle hooks. However,
when a CPU goes offline, it invokes arch_cpu_idle_dead() without invoking
any of RCU's idle hooks.

This commit therefore adds a call to do_nocb_deferred_wakeup() in
rcu_report_dead() in order to handle any deferred wakeups that have been
requested by the outgoing CPU.
