SubjectRe: [PATCH 5/5] rcu: Remove kfree_call_rcu_nobatch()
Hi Paul,

I think this is the only contentious patch preventing my resend of the
series, let me know what you think, I replied below:

I was only going by whatever is already committed to the -rcu dev branch. The
series is based on the -dev branch.

The original patch adding the kfree_rcu() batching is already merged into the
-rcu dev branch (that version just had 1 list, this series adds multiple
lists).

In the above diff, I just added the WARN_ON_ONCE() as extra checking for tree
RCU kfree batching. It has nothing to do with tiny RCU per-se. Should I
submit the WARN_ON_ONCE() as a separate patch then?

To prevent confusion, could you let me know if I am supposed to submitting
patches against a branch other than the dev branch?

Same comment as above, the original patch adding the schedule_delayed_work()
is already merged into the -dev branch. This series is based on top of that.
The reason I had to rearrange &krcp->monitor_todo code above is because we no
longer have kfree_rcu_no_batch() which this patch removes.

thanks,
