Subject[PATCH RFC tip/core/rcu] Make SRCU be once again optional
Hello, Nicolas!

Saw the TTY write up LWN and figured I should send this your way.
It should be worth about 2K compared to current -next, which gave
up the 2K compared to v4.10. So really getting things back to where
they were.

My current plan is to push this into v4.13.

Thanx, Paul

srcu: Make SRCU be once again optional

Commit d160a727c40e ("srcu: Make SRCU be built by default") in response
to build errors, which were caused by code that included srcu.h
despite !SRCU. However, srcutiny.o is almost 2K of code, which is not
insignificant for those attempting to run the Linux kernel on IoT devices.
This commit therefore makes SRCU be once again optional, and adjusts
srcu.h to allow error-free inclusion in !SRCU kernel builds.
