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:

Thanx, Paul
