Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 3/6] rcu: stopgap fix for synchronize_rcu_expedited() for TREE_PREEMPT_RCU
Date
From: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

For the short term, map synchronize_rcu_expedited() to synchronize_rcu()
for TREE_PREEMPT_RCU and to synchronize_sched_expedited() for TREE_RCU.
Longer term, there needs to be a real expedited grace period for
TREE_PREEMPT_RCU, but candidate patches to date are considerably more
complex and intrusive.
