Do not free the rcu_barrier() completion struct until all threads are
done with it.

It cannot reside on the waiter's stack as rcu_barrier() may return
before the call_rcu handlers have finished checking whether it needs a
futex wakeup. Instead we dynamically allocate the structure and
determine its lifetime with a reference count.

[ Edit by Mathieu Desnoyers: use urcu/ref.h. Cleanup: use
  uatomic_sub_return() rather than uatomic_add_return() with negative
  value. ]
