Subject[PATCH v3 tip/core/rcu 28/34] rcu-tasks: Disable CPU hotplug across RCU tasks trace scans
Date
From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@kernel.org>

This commit disables CPU hotplug across RCU tasks trace scans, which
is a first step towards correctly recognizing idle tasks "running" on
offline CPUs.
