Good questions :) I can't remember why I did this - probably because
I was breaking up into classic and preemptible RCU in incremental
patches with the goal that the break-up patch can be merged
before the rcu-preempt patches. IIRC, I had to make *batches_completed*()
a common RCU API later on.

Thanks
