blkcg: drop unnecessary RCU locking
Now that blkg additions / removals are always done under both q and blkcg locks, the only places RCU locking is necessary are blkg_lookup[_create]() for lookup w/o blkcg lock. This patch drops unncessary RCU locking replacing it with plain blkcg locking as necessary. * blkiocg_pre_destroy() already perform proper locking and don't need RCU. Dropped. * blkio_read_blkg_stats() now uses blkcg->lock instead of RCU read lock. This isn't a hot path. * Now unnecessary synchronize_rcu() from queue exit paths removed. This makes q->nr_blkgs unnecessary. Dropped. * RCU annotation on blkg->q removed. -v2: Vivek pointed out that blkg_lookup_create() still needs to be called under rcu_read_lock(). Updated. -v3: After the update, stats_lock locking in blkio_read_blkg_stats() shouldn't be using _irq variant as it otherwise ends up enabling irq while blkcg->lock is locked. Fixed.
