rcu: Add event-tracing for RCU callback invocation
There was recently some controversy about the overhead of invoking RCU callbacks. Add TRACE_EVENT()s to obtain fine-grained timings for the start and stop of a batch of callbacks and also for each callback invoked. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paul.mckenney@linaro.org> Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
