Subject[PATCH] RCU: Reduce size of rcu_head 1 of 2
I have merged Rusty's original patch for reducing the size of
rcu_heads by splitting the two main changes into two patches.
This first patch just changes the rcu_heads to use a singly linked
list for internal per-CPU lists. I also added the tail pointer
so that the rcu_heads can be queued in the same order (and
hence invoked) as it was done earlier. That way we are not
messing with callback semantics at all.

Thanks
Dipankar




This reduces the RCU head size by using a singly linked to maintain
them. The ordering of the callbacks is still maintained as before
by using a tail pointer for the next list. Rusty wrote the originial
patch which I merged and changed to make it use a tail pointer so
that ordering of callbacks is not changed.
