Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 01/86] rcu: Remove conditional compilation for RCU CPU stall warnings
Date
The RCU CPU stall warnings can now be controlled using the
rcu_cpu_stall_suppress boot-time parameter or via the same parameter
from sysfs. There is therefore no longer any reason to have
kernel config parameters for this feature. This commit therefore
removes the RCU_CPU_STALL_DETECTOR and RCU_CPU_STALL_DETECTOR_RUNNABLE
kernel config parameters. The RCU_CPU_STALL_TIMEOUT parameter remains
to allow the timeout to be tuned and the RCU_CPU_STALL_VERBOSE parameter
remains to allow task-stall information to be suppressed if desired.

Using RCU's CPU Stall Detector

-The CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_DETECTOR kernel config parameter enables
-RCU's CPU stall detector, which detects conditions that unduly delay
-RCU grace periods. The stall detector's idea of what constitutes
-"unduly delayed" is controlled by a set of C preprocessor macros:
+The rcu_cpu_stall_suppress module parameter enables RCU's CPU stall
+detector, which detects conditions that unduly delay RCU grace periods.
+This module parameter enables CPU stall detection by default, but
+may be overridden via boot-time parameter or at runtime via sysfs.
+The stall detector's idea of what constitutes "unduly delayed" is
+controlled by a set of kernel configuration variables and cpp macros:

-RCU_SECONDS_TILL_STALL_CHECK
+CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_TIMEOUT

- This macro defines the period of time that RCU will wait from
- the beginning of a grace period until it issues an RCU CPU
- stall warning. This time period is normally ten seconds.
