ring-buffer: User context bit recursion checking



Using context bit recursion checking, we can help increase the
performance of the ring buffer.

Before this patch:

 # echo function > /debug/tracing/current_tracer
 # for i in `seq 10`; do ./hackbench 50; done
Time: 10.285
Time: 10.407
Time: 10.243
Time: 10.372
Time: 10.380
Time: 10.198
Time: 10.272
Time: 10.354
Time: 10.248
Time: 10.253

(average: 10.3012)

Now we have:

 # echo function > /debug/tracing/current_tracer
 # for i in `seq 10`; do ./hackbench 50; done
Time: 9.712
Time: 9.824
Time: 9.861
Time: 9.827
Time: 9.962
Time: 9.905
Time: 9.886
Time: 10.088
Time: 9.861
Time: 9.834

(average: 9.876)

 a 4% savings!

/*
* The lock and unlock are done within a preempt disable section.
* The current_context per_cpu variable can only be modified
* by the current task between lock and unlock. But it can
* be modified more than once via an interrupt. To pass this
* information from the lock to the unlock without having to
* access the 'in_interrupt()' functions again (which do show
* a bit of overhead in something as critical as function tracing,
* we use a bitmask trick.
*
* bit 0 = NMI context
* bit 1 = IRQ context
* bit 2 = SoftIRQ context
* bit 3 = normal context.
*
* This works because this is the order of contexts that can
* preempt other contexts. A SoftIRQ never preempts an IRQ
* context.
*
* When the context is determined, the corresponding bit is
* checked and set (if it was set, then a recursion of that context
* happened).
*
* On unlock, we need to clear this bit. To do so, just subtract
* 1 from the current_context and AND it to itself.
*
* (binary)
* 101 - 1 = 100
* 101 & 100 = 100 (clearing bit zero)
*
* 1010 - 1 = 1001
* 1010 & 1001 = 1000 (clearing bit 1)
*
* The least significant bit can be cleared this way, and it
* just so happens that it is the same bit corresponding to
* the current context.
