    Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 0/28] patches queued for 3.1, first installment
    Hello!

    This patchset contains some simplifications, bug fixes, documentation
    updates, and a bunch of leftover conversions to kfree_rcu(). Almost
    all of the latter need either an Acked-by or to be taken into the
    appropriate maintainer tree. The patches are as follows:

    1. Simplify RCU kthread creation.
    2. Convert from kthread_create() to kthread_create_on_node()
    (courtesy of Eric Dumazet).
    3. Improve rcu_read_lock() code generation.
    4. Restore checks for blocking within RCU read-side critical
    sections under CONFIG_PROVE_RCU.
    5. Move struct rcu_head into types.h as a first step towards
    untangling header files.
    6. Update rcutorture documentation to account for boosting,
    memory-barrier testing, and (not so) new flavors of RCU.
    7. Fix type mismatch (courtesy of Andi Kleen).
    8. Combine common grace-period-wait code.
    9. Eliminate rcutorture workarounds for previously missing
    RCU API members, and add testing of synchronize_rcu_bh_expedited().
    10. Update RCU's NMI documentation.
    11-27. Conversions to kfree_rcu() (courtesy of Lai Jiangshan,
    in need of either Acked-by or adoption).
    28. Convert call_rcu(sk_filter_release_rcu) to kfree_rcu
    (courtesy of Lai Jiangshan, already acked).

    For a testing-only version of this patchset from git, please see the
    following subject-to-rebase branch:

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

    Thanx, Paul
