Userspace RCU 0.8.3 and 0.7.11


Sorry about the quick releases, but I though I should save our packagers some time by releasing this fix, so they can skip over yesterday's version. It fixes a higher-than-normal CPU usage in presence of long RCU read-side critical sections. It does not affect correctness of RCU, just the amount of CPU usage in very specific scenarios. Since there is only one new commit, I'm putting the full commit changelog (from the stable-0.8 branch) below.
