From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@kernel.org>

Although the rcu_swap_protected() macro follows the example of swap(),
the interactions with RCU make its update of its argument somewhat
counter-intuitive.  This commit therefore introduces an rcu_replace()
that returns the old value of the RCU pointer instead of doing the
argument update.  Once all the uses of rcu_swap_protected() are updated
to instead use rcu_replace(), rcu_swap_protected() will be removed.
