membarrier: Provide GLOBAL_EXPEDITED command
Allow expedited membarrier to be used for data shared between processes through shared memory. Processes wishing to receive the membarriers register with MEMBARRIER_CMD_REGISTER_GLOBAL_EXPEDITED. Those which want to issue membarrier invoke MEMBARRIER_CMD_GLOBAL_EXPEDITED. This allows extremely simple kernel-level implementation: we have almost everything we need with the PRIVATE_EXPEDITED barrier code. All we need to do is to add a flag in the mm_struct that will be used to check whether we need to send the IPI to the current thread of each CPU. There is a slight downside to this approach compared to targeting specific shared memory users: when performing a membarrier operation, all registered "global" receivers will get the barrier, even if they don't share a memory mapping with the sender issuing MEMBARRIER_CMD_GLOBAL_EXPEDITED. This registration approach seems to fit the requirement of not disturbing processes that really deeply care about real-time: they simply should not register with MEMBARRIER_CMD_REGISTER_GLOBAL_EXPEDITED. In order to align the membarrier command names, the "MEMBARRIER_CMD_SHARED" command is renamed to "MEMBARRIER_CMD_GLOBAL", keeping an alias of MEMBARRIER_CMD_SHARED to MEMBARRIER_CMD_GLOBAL for UAPI header backward compatibility.
