I think having it discoverable via menuconfig is useful, and I've got
no objections to it being under RCU_EXPERT
(assuming I don't badly muck up my RCU settings accidentally :).

I only had that one nit about maybe wanting to put something in dmesg
when we're using the expedited methods.

But otherwise both patches look great and are working well!

Do you mind marking them both for stable 4.4+?

Also, do make sure Dmitry gets the reported-by credit for the first patch.

thanks
