But rcutorture still hates it. Possibly because of this boneheaded bug:

int rcu_is_cpu_rrupt_from_idle(void)
{
return (__get_cpu_var(rcu_dynticks).dynticks_nesting & 0x1) <= 1;
}
Do you think that it might work better if I drop off the "& 0x1" that
I copy-pasted from rcu_is_cpu_idle()? ;-)

Sigh!!! Giving it a try now.

Thanx, Paul
