I have pulled these into -rcu for review and further testing, thank you!
I of course could not resist editing the commit logs, so please check
to make sure that I did not mess anything up. Just so you know, unless
this is urgent, it is in my v5.11 pile, that is, for the merge window
after next.

If someone else wants to take them, please feel free to add my
Acked-by to the RCU pieces.

Thanx, Paul
