The ACPI OS layer in Linux uses RCU to protect the walkers of the
list of ACPI memory mappings from seeing an inconsistent state
while it is being updated.  Among other situations, that list can
be walked in (NMI and non-NMI) interrupt context, so using a
sleeping lock to protect it is not an option.

However, performance issues related to the RCU usage in there
appear, as described by Dan Williams:

"Recently a performance problem was reported for a process invoking
a non-trival ASL program. The method call in this case ends up
repetitively triggering a call path like:

    acpi_ex_store
    acpi_ex_store_object_to_node
    acpi_ex_write_data_to_field
    acpi_ex_insert_into_field
    acpi_ex_write_with_update_rule
    acpi_ex_field_datum_io
    acpi_ex_access_region
    acpi_ev_address_space_dispatch
    acpi_ex_system_memory_space_handler
    acpi_os_map_cleanup.part.14
    _synchronize_rcu_expedited.constprop.89
    schedule

The end result of frequent synchronize_rcu_expedited() invocation is
tiny sub-millisecond spurts of execution where the scheduler freely
migrates this apparently sleepy task. The overhead of frequent
scheduler invocation multiplies the execution time by a factor
of 2-3X."

The source of this is that acpi_ex_system_memory_space_handler()
unmaps the memory mapping currently cached by it at the access time
if that mapping doesn't cover the memory area being accessed.
Consequently, if there is a memory opregion with two fields
separated from each other by an unused chunk of address space that
is large enough for not being covered by a single mapping, and they
happen to be used in an alternating pattern, the unmapping will
occur on every acpi_ex_system_memory_space_handler() invocation for
that memory opregion and that will lead to significant overhead.

However, if the OS supports deferred unmapping of ACPI memory,
such that the unused mappings will not be unmapped immediately,
but collected for unmapping when directly requested later,
acpi_ex_system_memory_space_handler() can be optimized to avoid
the above issue.

Namely, if ACPI_USE_DEFERRED_UNMAPPING is set for the given OS,
it is expected to provide acpi_os_unmap_deferred(), for dropping
references to memory mapping and queuing up the unused ones for
later unmapping, and acpi_os_release_unused_mappings(), for the
eventual unmapping of the unused mappings queued up earlier.

Accordingly, if ACPI_USE_DEFERRED_UNMAPPING is set,
acpi_ex_system_memory_space_handler() can use
acpi_os_unmap_deferred() to unmap memory ranges mapped by it,
so they are not unmapped right away, which addresses the issue
described above, and the unused mappings queued up by it for
removal can be unmapped later via acpi_os_release_unused_mappings().

Implement the ACPICA side of the described mechanism so as to
avoid the RCU-related performance issues with memory opregions.
