OK, agreed,

Heh ;) I too think it should be renamed. I'd suggest

__rcu_sync_enter(rss);

although I do not really mind and agree with any name.

Hopefully I'll send some cleanups soon, rcu_sync_enter() will be
re-implemented as

rcu_sync_enter(rss)
{
if (__rcu_sync_enter(rss))
__rcu_sync_wait(rss);
}

OK. And after those cleanups __rcu_sync_enter() can be called at any
time.

Oleg.
