Subject[PATCH v2] rcu: Allow to eliminate softirq processing from rcutree
From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Running RCU out of softirq is a problem for some workloads that would
like to manage RCU core processing independently of other softirq work,
for example, setting kthread priority.
This commit therefore introduces the `rcunosoftirq' option which moves
the RCU core work from softirq to a per-CPU/per-flavor SCHED_OTHER
kthread named rcuc.
The SCHED_OTHER approach avoids the scalability problems that appeared
with the earlier attempt to move RCU core processing to from softirq to
kthreads.
That said, kernels built with RCU_BOOST=y will run the rcuc kthreads at
the RCU-boosting priority.

v1…v2:
- rebased to Paul's rcu/dev tree/branch
- Replaced Mike's email with @gmx.de since the @online.de does
not work anymore.
