Subject[RFC PATCH 03/12] rcu: Provide basic callback offloading state machine bits
Date
We'll need to be able to runtime offload and de-offload the processing
of callback for a given CPU. In order to support a smooth transition
from unlocked local processing (softirq/rcuc) to locked offloaded
processing (rcuop/rcuog) and the reverse, provide the necessary bits and
documentation for the state machine that will carry up all the steps to
enforce correctness while serving callbacks processing all along.
