I feel like you're trying to help people understand the code better,
but using longer names can really work against that. Reverting to
calling the parameter 'rcu_head' lets you not split the line:

+#define kfree_rcu(ptr, rcu_head) \
+ do { \
+ typeof(ptr) __ptr = ptr; \
+ unsigned long __off = offsetof(typeof(*(__ptr)), rcu_head); \
+ struct rcu_head *__rptr = (void *)__ptr + __off; \
+ __kfree_rcu(__rptr, __off); \
+ } while (0)

Also, I don't understand why you're bothering to create __ptr here.
I understand the desire to not mention the same argument more than once,
but you have 'ptr' twice anyway.

And it's good practice to enclose macro arguments in parentheses in case
the user has done something really tricksy like pass in "p + 1".

In summary, I don't see anything fundamentally better in your rewrite
of kfree_rcu(). The previous version is more succinct, and to my
mind, easier to understand.

You've silently changed this. Why? It might well be the right change,
but it at least merits mentioning in the changelog.
