    The cost is enormous, we really can't use it here.

    I have a patch that did top-level socket destruction using RCU,
    and that didn't use synchronize_rcu(), and that killed connection
    rates by up to %20.

    I can only imagine what the cost would be if I had to add such a call
    in there.

    Really, I can't consider these changes seriously, as-is.
