Not so; I could make an RCU implementation that drives the state machine
from rcu_read_unlock(). Such an implementation doesn't need the
interrupt driven poll-state driver we currently have and could thus
subvert that assumption :-)

Then again, there's a good reason PaulMck didn't pick this
implementation.

Yeah, me neither :-(, it always surprises me. But changing it is likely
to break stuff so there we are.
