Hi Kent,

The race bug reporter replies me that the closure race bug is very rare
to reproduce, after applying the patch and testing, they are not sure
whether their closure race problem is fixed or not.

And I notice rcu_read_lock()/rcu_read_unlock() is used here, but it is
not clear to me what is the functionality of the rcu read lock in
closure_sync_fn(). I believe you have reason to use the rcu stuffs here,
could you please provide some hints to help me to understand the change
better ?

Thanks in advance.

Coly Li
