Good! But why int instead of bool?

You lost me on this one...

How about something like this?

bool krts = kfree_rcu_test_single || kfree_rcu_test_single == kfree_rcu_test_double;
bool krtd = kfree_rcu_test_double || kfree_rcu_test_single == kfree_rcu_test_double;
bool krtb = kfree_rcu_test_single && kfree_rcu_test_double;
DEFINE_TORTURE_RANDOM(tr);

...

alloc_ptr = kmalloc(kfree_mult * sizeof(struct kfree_obj), GFP_KERNEL);
if (!alloc_ptr)
return -ENOMEM;
if (krtd || (krtb && (torture_random(&tr) & 0x800)))
kfree_rcu(alloc_ptr, rh);
else
kfree_rcu(alloc_ptr);

And this is why I was so confused about the earlier OOMs. We need
something stronger, and not here, but rather inside the above loop.
The function rcu_torture_fwd_prog_cond_resched() does what is needed,
which needs to be moved to kernel/torture.c or to be a static inline in
include/linux/torture.h so that it can be invoked here.

The flooding we are looking to emulate has to have frequent trips into
userspace, and rcu_torture_fwd_prog_cond_resched() is the way that we
emulate those trips.

But please make this change be a separate patch.

Thanx, Paul
