This implements the cputime accounting on full dynticks CPUs.

Typical cputime stats infrastructure relies on the timer tick and
its periodic polling on the CPU to account the amount of time
spent by the CPUs and the tasks per high level domains such as
userspace, kernelspace, guest, ...

Now we are preparing to implement full dynticks capability on
Linux for Real Time and HPC users who want full CPU isolation.
This feature requires a cputime accounting that doesn't depend
on the timer tick.

To implement it, this new cputime infrastructure plugs into
kernel/user/guest boundaries to take snapshots of cputime and
flush these to the stats when needed. This performs pretty
much like CONFIG_VIRT_CPU_ACCOUNTING except that context location
and cputime snaphots are synchronized between write and read
side such that the latter can safely retrieve the pending tickless
cputime of a task and add it to its latest cputime snapshot to
return the correct result to the user.

cputime: Safely read cputime of full dynticks CPUs

While remotely reading the cputime of a task running in a
full dynticks CPU, the values stored in utime/stime fields
of struct task_struct may be stale. Its values may be those
of the last kernel <-> user transition time snapshot and
we need to add the tickless time spent since this snapshot.

To fix this, flush the cputime of the dynticks CPUs on
kernel <-> user transition and record the time / context
where we did this. Then on top of this snapshot and the current
time, perform the fixup on the reader side from task_times()
accessors.
