    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].
