Subject[RFC PATCH -rt] Almost-ready-for-prime-time RCU priority boosting
Hello!

An update to the long-standing need for priority boosting of RCU readers
in -rt kernels. This patch passes moderate testing, considerably more
severe than that faced by previous versions. Known shortcomings:

o This patch has not yet been subjected to enterprise-level
stress testing. It therefore likely still contains a few bugs.
My next step is to write some enterprise-level tests, probably
as extensions to the RCU torture tests.

o No tie-in to the OOM system. Note that the RCU priority booster,
unlike other subsystems that respond to OOM, takes action over
a timeframe. Boosting the priority of long-blocked RCU readers
does not immediately complete the grace period, so the RCU priority
booster needs to know the duration of the OOM event rather than
just being told to free up memory immediately. This likely also
means that the RCU priority booster should be given early warning
of impending OOM, so that it has the time it needs to react.

I have not worried much about this yet, since my belief is that
the current approach will get the RCU callbacks processed in
a timely manner in almost all cases. However, the tie-in to
OOM might be needed for small-memory systems.

o Although the RCU priority booster's own priority is easily adjusted
in a running kernel, it currently boosts blocked RCU readers
to a fixed priority just below that of IRQ handler threads.
This is straightforward and important, but I need to get all
the bugs shaken out before worrying about ease of use.

o A design document is needed. This is on my list!

A couple of questions:

o Currently, the rcu_boost_prio() and rcu_unboost_prio() functions
are in kernel/rcupreempt.c, because this allows them to be
declared as static. But if I ignore the desire to declare them
as static, I would instead put them into kernel/rt_mutex.c
with the other priority-inheritance code. Should I move them
to kernel/rt_mutex.c?

o It appears to me that one must always hold ->pi_lock when calling
rt_mutex_setprio(). Is this really the case? (If so, I will
add words to this effect to its comment header. And the longevity
of my test kernels seemed to increase dramatically when I added
this locking, for whatever that is worth.)

Anyway, here is the patch. Any and all comments greatly appreciated.
