Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 0/14] Fixups for 3.6
Hello!

This patch series has general fixups and improvements:

1. Get rid of the false positives from the code that recognizes
a CPU stall that ends just as it is detected.
2. Consolidate open-coded initializations of RCU callback lists.
3. Protect unsynchronized accesses to ->qlen with ACCESS_ONCE()
to document the unsynchronized access and to prevent compiler
mischief.
4. Add INIT_RCU_POINTER() for static initialization to allow
do-while formulation of the existing RCU_INIT_POINTER().
5. Convert clever use of RCU_INIT_POINTER() for gcc-style
initialization to INIT_RCU_POINTER().
6. Wrap RCU_INIT_POINTER() macro in obligatory do-while.
7. Remove extraneous parentheses from rcu_assign_keypointer()
to allow rcu_assign_pointer() to be wrapped in do-while.
8. Wrap rcu_assign_pointer() macro in obligatory do-while.
9. Consolidate the identical CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU and
CONFIG_TINY_PREEMPT_RCU versions of __rcu_read_lock() and
__rcu_read_unlock().
10. Remove the old inline-function version of __kfree_rcu() and
__is_kfree_rcu_offset().
11. Make __call_rcu() correctly handle calls from the idle loop.
12. Make __call_rcu() correctly handle calls from a CPU that is
in the process of going offline.
13. Split __call_rcu() into the part that actually deals with
enqueueing the callback and the part that kicks RCU's
grace-period machinery.
14. Make RCU_TINY's rcu_is_cpu_idle() function safe for "make
randconfig".

Thanx, Paul
