Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 16/17] rcu: Introduce single argument kvfree_rcu() interface
Date
From: "Uladzislau Rezki (Sony)" <urezki@gmail.com>

Make kvfree_rcu() capable of freeing objects that will not
embed an rcu_head within it. This saves storage overhead in
such objects. Reclaiming headless objects this way requires
only a single argument (pointer to the object).

After this patch, there are two ways to use kvfree_rcu():

a) kvfree_rcu(ptr, rhf);
struct X {
struct rcu_head rhf;
unsigned char data[100];
};

void *ptr = kvmalloc(sizeof(struct X), GFP_KERNEL);
if (ptr)
kvfree_rcu(ptr, rhf);

b) kvfree_rcu(ptr);
void *ptr = kvmalloc(some_bytes, GFP_KERNEL);
if (ptr)
kvfree_rcu(ptr);

Note that the headless usage (example b) can only be used in a code
that can sleep. This is enforced by the CONFIG_DEBUG_ATOMIC_SLEEP
option.
