Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 05/12] stop_machine: EXP Provide RCU quiescent state in multi_cpu_stop()
Date
From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@linux.ibm.com>

When multi_cpu_stop() loops waiting for other tasks, it can trigger an RCU
CPU stall warning. This can be misleading because what is instead needed
is information on whatever task is blocking multi_cpu_stop(). This commit
therefore inserts an RCU quiescent state into the multi_cpu_stop()
function's waitloop.
