Subject[PATCH RFC tip/core/rcu 01/16] rcu: substitute set_need_resched for sending resched IPIs
Date
This patch adds a check to __rcu_pending() that does a local
set_need_resched() if the current CPU is holding up the current grace
period and if force_quiescent_state() will be called soon. The goal is
to reduce the probability that force_quiescent_state() will need to do
smp_send_reschedule(), which sends an IPI and is therefore more expensive
on most architectures.
