Subject[GIT PULL rcu/next] fixes and breakup of memory-barrier-decrease patch
Hello, Ingo,

This pull requests covers some RCU bug fixes and one patch rework.

The first group breaks up the infamous now-reverted (but ultimately
vindicated) "Decrease memory-barrier usage based on semi-formal proof"
commit into five commits. These five commits immediately follow the
revert, and the diff across all six of these commits is empty, so that
the effect of the five commits is to revert the revert.

Another commit, "Avoid build error for third-party modules", fixes
a build error reported by Randy Dunlap.

Another pair of commits, "Add atomic_or()" and "Avoid acquiring rcu_node
locks in timer functions", fix a lockdep splat reported by Valdis Kletnieks.

Finally, "Remove waitqueue usage for cpu, node, and boost kthreads", from
Peter Zijlstra, simplifies the RCU kthread wakeup logic and that also fixes a
bug that resulted in a crash.

These changes are available in the -rcu git repository at:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/linux-2.6-rcu.git rcu/next
