Merge branch 'core-rcu-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull RCU updates from Ingo Molnar: - Continued initialization/Kconfig updates: hide most Kconfig options from unsuspecting users. There's now a single high level configuration option: * * RCU Subsystem * Make expert-level adjustments to RCU configuration (RCU_EXPERT) [N/y/?] (NEW) Which if answered in the negative, leaves us with a single interactive configuration option: Offload RCU callback processing from boot-selected CPUs (RCU_NOCB_CPU) [N/y/?] (NEW) All the rest of the RCU options are configured automatically. Later on we'll remove this single leftover configuration option as well. - Remove all uses of RCU-protected array indexes: replace the rcu_[access|dereference]_index_check() APIs with READ_ONCE() and rcu_lockdep_assert() - RCU CPU-hotplug cleanups - Updates to Tiny RCU: a race fix and further code shrinkage. - RCU torture-testing updates: fixes, speedups, cleanups and documentation updates. - Miscellaneous fixes - Documentation updates * 'core-rcu-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (60 commits) rcutorture: Allow repetition factors in Kconfig-fragment lists rcutorture: Display "make oldconfig" errors rcutorture: Update TREE_RCU-kconfig.txt rcutorture: Make rcutorture scripts force RCU_EXPERT rcutorture: Update configuration fragments for rcutree.rcu_fanout_exact rcutorture: TASKS_RCU set directly, so don't explicitly set it rcutorture: Test SRCU cleanup code path rcutorture: Replace barriers with smp_store_release() and smp_load_acquire() locktorture: Change longdelay_us to longdelay_ms rcutorture: Allow negative values of nreaders to oversubscribe rcutorture: Exchange TREE03 and TREE08 NR_CPUS, speed up CPU hotplug rcutorture: Exchange TREE03 and TREE04 geometries locktorture: fix deadlock in 'rw_lock_irq' type rcu: Correctly handle non-empty Tiny RCU callback list with none ready rcutorture: Test both RCU-sched and RCU-bh for Tiny RCU rcu: Further shrink Tiny RCU by making empty functions static inlines rcu: Conditionally compile RCU's eqs warnings rcu: Remove prompt for RCU implementation rcu: Make RCU able to tolerate undefined CONFIG_RCU_KTHREAD_PRIO rcu: Make RCU able to tolerate undefined CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT_LEAF ...
