[RFC PR] RISC-V changes for 4.17

Here's the PR I'm planning on submitting to Linus for the first half of the
4.17 merge window.  Unless anyone knows of any problems I'll submit the PR on
Wednesday morning.  I haven't given this a much testing as I probably should
have, so please go give things a shot!

I don't want to take any new code for Wednesday, but I'm planning on taking the
perf stuff for next week if some small issues iron themselves out.

Thanks to everyone for all the help!

    The following changes since commit 0adb32858b0bddf4ada5f364a84ed60b196dbcda:

      RISC-V: Fixes to module loading (2018-04-02 20:43:14 -0700)
    RISC-V changes for 4.17
    This tag contains the new features we'd like to incorporate into the
    RISC-V port for 4.17.  We might have a bit more stuff land later in the
    merge window, but I wanted to get this out earlier just so everyone can
    see where we currently stand.
    A short summary of the changes is:
    * We've added support for dynamic ftrace on RISC-V targets.
    * There have been a handful of cleanups to our atomic and locking
      routines.  They now more closely match the released RISC-V memory
      model draft.
    * Our module loading support has been cleaned up and is now enabled by
      default, despite some limitations still existing.
    There's more information in the merge commits for each patch set.
