Subject[RELEASE] Userspace RCU 0.5.4
liburcu is a LGPLv2.1 userspace RCU (read-copy-update) library. This data
synchronization library provides read-side access which scales linearly with the
number of cores. It does so by allowing multiples copies of a given data
structure to live at the same time, and by monitoring the data structure
accesses to detect grace periods after which memory reclamation is possible.

Changelog for v0.5.4:

* urcu-bp: Update fork() handling


extern void rcu_bp_before_fork(void);
extern void rcu_bp_after_fork_parent(void);
extern void rcu_bp_after_fork_child(void);

to handle fork gracefully. These disable signals and hold the registry mutex
across forks. (this flavor of the liburcu library ("bp" for "bulletproof")
is mainly used by UST, the user-space tracer).
