Since RCU callback migration is only performed on CPU-hotunplug operations, and since the rcu_barrier() race is provoked only by consecutive CPU-hotunplug operations, it is not necessary to delay the end of a given CPU-hotunplug operation. We can instead choose to delay the beginning of the next CPU-hotunplug operation. Reported-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu> Signed-off-by: Paul E.
