This patch replace a rwlock and raw notifier by atomic notifier which
protected by spin_lock and rcu.

The first to reason to have this replace is due to a 'scheduling while
 atomic' bug of RT kernel on arm/arm64 platform. On arm/arm64, rwlock
cpu_pm_notifier_lock in cpu_pm cause a potential schedule after irq
disable in idle call chain:

cpu_startup_entry
  cpu_idle_loop
    local_irq_disable()
    cpuidle_idle_call
      call_cpuidle
        cpuidle_enter
          cpuidle_enter_state
            ->enter :arm_enter_idle_state
              cpu_pm_enter/exit
                CPU_PM_CPU_IDLE_ENTER
                  read_lock(&cpu_pm_notifier_lock); <-- sleep in idle
                     __rt_spin_lock();
                        schedule();

The kernel panic is here:
[    4.609601] BUG: scheduling while atomic: swapper/1/0/0x00000002
[    4.609608] [<ffff0000086fae70>] arm_enter_idle_state+0x18/0x70

[    4.609645] [<ffff00000808e004>] secondary_start_kernel+0x15c/0x1a0

Daniel Lezcano said this notification is needed on arm/arm64 platforms.
Sebastian suggested using atomic_notifier instead of rwlock, which is not
only removing the sleeping in idle, but also getting better latency
improvement.

This patch passed Fengguang's 0day testing.

Applied (although you have forgotten to CC me actually).
