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.
