Yeah, good point - I distilled that list in the merge commit
itself (see commit bdd4431c8d071491a68a65d9457996f222b5ecd3) -
should have exported that to the pull request itself:

Subject: [PATCH] Merge branch 'rcu/next' of
git:// into core/rcu

The major features of this series are:

- making RCU more aggressive about entering dyntick-idle mode in order to
improve energy efficiency

- converting a few more call_rcu()s to kfree_rcu()s

- applying a number of rcutree fixes and cleanups to rcutiny

- removing CONFIG_SMP #ifdefs from treercu

- allowing RCU CPU stall times to be set via sysfs

- adding CPU-stall capability to rcutorture

- adding more RCU-abuse diagnostics

- updating documentation

- fixing yet more issues located by the still-ongoing top-to-bottom
inspection of RCU, this time with a special focus on the
CPU-hotplug code path.
