Subject[PATCH] block: remove all rcu head initializations
Hello, Jens,

Would you like to carry this patch, or should I push it up -tip? If I
don't hear otherwise from you, I will push it up -tip. The
INIT_RCU_HEAD() primitive is going away in favor of debugobjects.

Thanx, Paul


block: remove all rcu head initializations

Remove all rcu head inits. We don't care about the RCU head state before passing
it to call_rcu() anyway. Only leave the "on_stack" variants so debugobjects can
keep track of objects on stack.
