Sure, kill the obnoxious thing, it's sitting right in the middle of the
userspace interface.

I banged on it a while back (wrt explosive android patches), extracted
RCU from the userspace interface. It seemed to work great, much faster,
couldn't make it explode. I wouldn't bet anything I wasn't willing to
immediately part with that the result was really really safe though ;-)
