Merge branch 'core-rcu-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull RCU changes from Ingo Molnar: "The main changes in this cycle were: - changes permitting use of call_rcu() and friends very early in boot, for example, before rcu_init() is invoked. - add in-kernel API to enable and disable expediting of normal RCU grace periods. - improve RCU's handling of (hotplug-) outgoing CPUs. - NO_HZ_FULL_SYSIDLE fixes. - tiny-RCU updates to make it more tiny. - documentation updates. - miscellaneous fixes" * 'core-rcu-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip: (58 commits) cpu: Provide smpboot_thread_init() on !CONFIG_SMP kernels as well cpu: Defer smpboot kthread unparking until CPU known to scheduler rcu: Associate quiescent-state reports with grace period rcu: Yet another fix for preemption and CPU hotplug rcu: Add diagnostics to grace-period cleanup rcutorture: Default to grace-period-initialization delays rcu: Handle outgoing CPUs on exit from idle loop cpu: Make CPU-offline idle-loop transition point more precise rcu: Eliminate ->onoff_mutex from rcu_node structure rcu: Process offlining and onlining only at grace-period start rcu: Move rcu_report_unblock_qs_rnp() to common code rcu: Rework preemptible expedited bitmask handling rcu: Remove event tracing from rcu_cpu_notify(), used by offline CPUs rcutorture: Enable slow grace-period initializations rcu: Provide diagnostic option to slow down grace-period initialization rcu: Detect stalls caused by failure to propagate up rcu_node tree rcu: Eliminate empty HOTPLUG_CPU ifdef rcu: Simplify sync_rcu_preempt_exp_init() rcu: Put all orphan-callback-related code under same comment rcu: Consolidate offline-CPU callback initialization ...

+ This option enables expedited grace periods at boot time,

+ The corresponding rcu_unexpedite_gp() is invoked from
