Subject[GIT PULL] RCU fixes
Linus,

Please pull the latest core-urgent-for-linus git tree from:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git core-urgent-for-linus

HEAD: d36b7b9643faca8aab8cee8d824f75c800b337ac Merge branch 'rcu/urgent' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/linux-rcu into core/urgent

Two small fixlets.

Thanks,

Ingo
