    I believe not the abstract (empty) task should be invoked, but a real
    task which does the work. Presumably if we want to schedule a way
    networking part to copy its counters, system should wake up the
    appropriate userspace thread blocked in a grace-period waking path, so
    effectively either RCU callback processing code or some registered
    thread should be awakened.

    Just a detail though.
