Merge branch 'core-rcu-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull RCU updates from Ingo Molnar: "The biggest RCU changes in this cycle were: - Convert RCU's BUG_ON() and similar calls to WARN_ON() and similar. - Replace calls of RCU-bh and RCU-sched update-side functions to their vanilla RCU counterparts. This series is a step towards complete removal of the RCU-bh and RCU-sched update-side functions. ( Note that some of these conversions are going upstream via their respective maintainers. ) - Documentation updates, including a number of flavor-consolidation updates from Joel Fernandes. - Miscellaneous fixes. - Automate generation of the initrd filesystem used for rcutorture testing. - Convert spin_is_locked() assertions to instead use lockdep. ( Note that some of these conversions are going upstream via their respective maintainers. ) - SRCU updates, especially including a fix from Dennis Krein for a bag-on-head-class bug. - RCU torture-test updates" * 'core-rcu-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (112 commits) rcutorture: Don't do busted forward-progress testing rcutorture: Use 100ms buckets for forward-progress callback histograms rcutorture: Recover from OOM during forward-progress tests rcutorture: Print forward-progress test age upon failure rcutorture: Print time since GP end upon forward-progress failure rcutorture: Print histogram of CB invocation at OOM time rcutorture: Print GP age upon forward-progress failure rcu: Print per-CPU callback counts for forward-progress failures rcu: Account for nocb-CPU callback counts in RCU CPU stall warnings rcutorture: Dump grace-period diagnostics upon forward-progress OOM rcutorture: Prepare for asynchronous access to rcu_fwd_startat torture: Remove unnecessary "ret" variables rcutorture: Affinity forward-progress test to avoid housekeeping CPUs rcutorture: Break up too-long rcu_torture_fwd_prog() function rcutorture: Remove cbflood facility torture: Bring any extra CPUs online during kernel startup rcutorture: Add call_rcu() flooding forward-progress tests rcutorture/formal: Replace synchronize_sched() with synchronize_rcu() tools/kernel.h: Replace synchronize_sched() with synchronize_rcu() net/decnet: Replace rcu_barrier_bh() with rcu_barrier() ...
