Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 37/55] rcu: Simplify unboosting checks
Date
From: Paul E. McKenney <paul.mckenney@linaro.org>

Commit 7765be (Fix RCU_BOOST race handling current->rcu_read_unlock_special)
introduced a new ->rcu_boosted field in the task structure. This is
redundant because the existing ->rcu_boost_mutex will be non-NULL at
any time that ->rcu_boosted is nonzero. Therefore, this commit removes
->rcu_boosted and tests ->rcu_boost_mutex instead.
