    Well it was surprising to me that kmem_cache_destroy() would perform rcu
    actions in the first place. RCU is usually handled externally and not
    within the slab allocator. The only reason that SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU exists
    is because the user cannot otherwise control the final release of memory
    to the page allocator.
