     exec: RCUify AddressSpaceDispatch

     Note that even after this patch, most callers of address_space_*
     functions must still be under the big QEMU lock, otherwise the memory
     region returned by address_space_translate can disappear as soon as
     address_space_translate returns.  This will be fixed in the next part
     of this series.

@Paolo, @Fam, any idea?
When you use RCU, freeing stuff is delayed a bit.

define a bit?

I face the issue that it seems (some) stuff is actually never freed...

Consider the following simple vServer:

./x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -M pc-i440fx-2.1 -nodefaults -serial null -parallel null -m 4096 -smp 4,sockets=1,cores=4,threads=1 -monitor tcp:0:4004,server,nowait,nodelay -mem-path /hugepages -mem-prealloc -cpu Westmere,enforce -rtc base=utc -no-hpet -vga vmware -pidfile /tmp/qemu.pid
