Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 13/23] rcu: Control grace-period duration from sysfs
Date
From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paul.mckenney@linaro.org>

Some uses of RCU benefit from shorter grace periods, while others benefit
more from the greater efficiency provided by longer grace periods.
Therefore, this commit allows the durations to be controlled from sysfs.
There are two sysfs parameters, one named "jiffies_till_first_fqs" that
specifies the delay in jiffies from the end of grace-period initialization
until the first attempt to force quiescent states, and the other named
"jiffies_till_next_fqs" that specifies the delay (again in jiffies)
between subsequent attempts to force quiescent states. They both default
to three jiffies, which is compatible with the old hard-coded behavior.
