Yes, you could make RCU expedited grace periods go back to using the
requesting task, and that would allow expedited grace periods to run early
in the boot process. But that causes problems with signals and the like
unless you revert a few other patches. The bugzilla is interesting --
it looks like ACPI was in some cases doing early-boot grace-period waits
some time back?

I have a limping prototype RCU patch that should avoid this problem.

If all goes well, I will send it out late tomorrow evening, Pacific Time.

Thanx, Paul
