srcu: Avoid local_irq_save() before acquiring spinlock_t

SRCU disables interrupts to get a stable per-CPU pointer and then
acquires the spinlock which is in the per-CPU data structure. The
release uses spin_unlock_irqrestore(). While this is correct on a non-RT
kernel, this conflicts with the RT semantics because the spinlock is
converted to a 'sleeping' spinlock. Sleeping locks can obviously not be
acquired with interrupts disabled.

Acquire the per-CPU pointer `ssp->sda' without disabling preemption and
then acquire the spinlock_t of the per-CPU data structure. The lock will
ensure that the data is consistent.

The added call to check_init_srcu_struct() is now needed because a
statically defined srcu_struct may remain uninitialized until this
point and the newly introduced locking operation requires an initialized

This change was tested for four hours with 8*SRCU-N and 8*SRCU-P without
causing any warnings.
