Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 21/55] rcu: Make TINY_RCU also use softirq for RCU_BOOST=n
Date
From: Paul E. McKenney <paul.mckenney@linaro.org>

This patch #ifdefs TINY_RCU kthreads out of the kernel unless RCU_BOOST=y,
thus eliminating context-switch overhead if RCU priority boosting has
not been configured.
