This is a great addition, but it would be even better if there was
a way to say "test both in one run". One way to do this is to have
torture_param() variables for both kfree_rcu_test_single and (say)
kfree_rcu_test_double, both bool and both initialized to false. If both
have the same value (false or true) both are tested, otherwise only
the one with value true is tested. The value of this is that it allows
testing of both options with one test.

See the gp_cond, gp_exp, gp_normal, gp_poll, and gp_sync torture_param()
variables in kernel/rcu/rcutorture.c and how they are handled in
rcu_torture_write_types() for one way to do this.

If you wanted to vary the intensity of the testing (but I don't see why
this would be useful), the various weight_* torture_param() variables
are dealt with by kernel/scftorture.c in scf_torture_init().

Thoughts?

Thanx, Paul
