Subject: [PATCH v2 2/4] sched_domain: Annotate RCU pointers properly

The scheduler uses RCU API in various places to access sched_domain
pointers. These cause sparse errors as below.

Many new errors show up because of an annotation check I added to
rcu_assign_pointer(). Let us annotate the pointers correctly which also
will help sparse catch any potential future bugs.

This fixes the following sparse errors:
