Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 15/23] rcu: Make rcutree module parameters visible in sysfs
Date
From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

The module parameters blimit, qhimark, and qlomark (and more
recently, rcu_fanout_leaf) have permission masks of zero, so
that their values are not visible from sysfs. This is unnecessary
and inconvenient to administrators who might like an easy way to
see what these values are on a running system. This commit therefore
sets their permission masks to 0444, allowing them to be read but
not written.
