In some cases, tracing shows that need_heavy_qs is still set even though
urgent_qs was cleared upon reporting of a quiescent state.  One such
case is when the softirq reports that a CPU has passed quiescent state.

Commit 671a63517cf9 ("rcu: Avoid unnecessary softirq when system is
idle") fixed a bug where core_needs_qs was not being cleared.  In order
to avoid running into similar situations with the urgent-grace-period
flags, this commit causes rcu_disable_urgency_upon_qs(), previously
rcu_disable_tick_upon_qs(), to clear the urgency hints, ->rcu_urgent_qs
and ->rcu_need_heavy_qs.  Note that it is possible for CPUs to go
offline with these urgency hints still set.  This is handled because
rcu_disable_urgency_upon_qs() is also invoked during the online process.

Because these hints can be cleared both by the corresponding CPU and by
the grace-period kthread, this commit also adds a number of READ_ONCE()
and WRITE_ONCE() calls.

Tested overnight with rcutorture running for 60 minutes on all
configurations of RCU.
