ioprio: grab rcu_read_lock in sys_ioprio_{set,get}()

Using:
- CONFIG_LOCKUP_DETECTOR=y
- CONFIG_PREEMPT=y
- CONFIG_LOCKDEP=y
- CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING=y
- CONFIG_PROVE_RCU=y
found a missing rcu lock during boot on a 512 MiB x86_64 ubuntu vm:
  ===================================================
  [ INFO: suspicious rcu_dereference_check() usage. ]
  ---------------------------------------------------
  kernel/pid.c:419 invoked rcu_dereference_check() without protection!

  other info that might help us debug this:

  rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 0
  1 lock held by ureadahead/1355:
   #0:  (tasklist_lock){.+.+..}, at: [<ffffffff8115bc09>] sys_ioprio_set+0x7f/0x29e

  stack backtrace:
  Pid: 1355, comm: ureadahead Not tainted 2.6.37-dbg-DEV #1
  Call Trace:
   [<ffffffff8109c10c>] lockdep_rcu_dereference+0xaa/0xb3
   [<ffffffff81088cbf>] find_task_by_pid_ns+0x44/0x5d
   [<ffffffff81088cfa>] find_task_by_vpid+0x22/0x24

   [<ffffffff8105c409>] sysenter_dispatch+0x7/0x2c
   [<ffffffff8147cee2>] ? trace_hardirqs_on_thunk+0x3a/0x3f

The fix is to:
a) grab rcu lock in sys_ioprio_{set,get}() and
b) avoid grabbing tasklist_lock.

Modified by Jens to remove the now redundant inner rcu lock and
unlock since they are now protected by the outer lock.
