it is srcu_barrier(), it have to wait all callbacks complete for all
cpus since it is per-cpu
implementation.

The workqueue handles it, not here, if a cpu state machine has callbacks, the
state machine is started, if it has no callback, srcu_barrier() does
nothing for
this cpu

Yes, the main purpose is:
make the time of sp->gp_lock short, can be determined.
