Subject[GIT PULL rcu-tasks-trace] 50x speedup for synchronize_rcu_tasks_trace()
Hello, Alexei,

This pull request contains eight commits that speed up RCU Tasks Trace
grace periods by a factor of 50, fix a few race conditions exposed
by this speedup, and clean up a couple of minor issues. These have
been exposed to 0day and -next testing, and have passed well over 1,000
hours of rcutorture testing, some of which has contained ad-hoc changes
to further increase race probabilities. So they should be solid!
(Famous last words...)

I would normally have sent this series up through -tip, but as we
discussed, going up through the BFP and networking trees provides the
needed exposure to real-world testing of these changes. Please note
that the first patch is already in mainline, but given identical SHA-1
commit IDs, git should have no problem figuring this out. I will also
be retaining these commits in -rcu in order to continue exposing them
to rcutorture testing, but again the identical SHA-1 commit IDs will
make everything work out.

The fact that these commits will reside in multiple trees is of course
what motivates inclusion of the otherwise unrelated minor-issue cleanups.
Including these cleanups allows all the various trees to keep synchronized
SHA-1 commit IDs. And so, without further ado:

The following changes since commit 9123e3a74ec7b934a4a099e98af6a61c2f80bbf5:
