Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 03/17] rcu: Add ACCESS_ONCE() to ->qlen accesses
Date
From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paul.mckenney@linaro.org>

The _rcu_barrier() function accesses other CPUs' rcu_data structure's
->qlen field without benefit of locking. This commit therefore adds
the required ACCESS_ONCE() wrappers around accesses and updates that
need it.

ACCESS_ONCE() is not needed when a CPU accesses its own ->qlen, or
in code that cannot run while _rcu_barrier() is sampling ->qlen fields.
