Subject[PATCH v2 13/16] rcu: Introduce 2 arg kvfree_rcu() interface
Date
kvmalloc() can allocate two types of objects: SLAB backed
and vmalloc backed. How it behaves depends on requested
object's size and memory pressure.

Add a kvfree_rcu() interface that can free memory allocated
via kvmalloc(). It is a simple alias to kfree_rcu() which
can now handle either type of object.

<snip>
struct test_kvfree_rcu {
struct rcu_head rcu;
unsigned char array[100];
};

struct test_kvfree_rcu *p;

p = kvmalloc(10 * PAGE_SIZE);
if (p)
kvfree_rcu(p, rcu);
<snip>
