Subject[patch 08/23] dynticks: prepare the RCU code
From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

prepare the RCU code for dynticks/nohz. Since on nohz kernels there
is no guaranteed timer IRQ that processes RCU callbacks, the idle
code has to make sure that all RCU callbacks that can be finished
off are indeed finished off. This patch adds the necessary APIs:
rcu_advance_callbacks() [to register quiescent state] and
rcu_process_callbacks() [to finish finishable RCU callbacks].
