Merge branch 'rcu/urgent' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/linux-rcu
Pull RCU fixes from Paul McKenney: "I must confess that this past merge window was not RCU's best showing. This series contains three more fixes for RCU regressions: 1. A fix to __DECLARE_TRACE_RCU() that causes it to act as an interrupt from idle rather than as a task switch from idle. This change is needed due to the recent use of _rcuidle() tracepoints that can be invoked from interrupt handlers as well as from idle. Without this fix, invoking _rcuidle() tracepoints from interrupt handlers results in splats and (more seriously) confusion on RCU's part as to whether a given CPU is idle or not. This confusion can in turn result in too-short grace periods and therefore random memory corruption. 2. A fix to a subtle deadlock that could result due to RCU doing a wakeup while holding one of its rcu_node structure's locks. Although the probability of occurrence is low, it really does happen. The fix, courtesy of Steven Rostedt, uses irq_work_queue() to avoid the deadlock. 3. A fix to a silent deadlock (invisible to lockdep) due to the interaction of timeouts posted by RCU debug code enabled by CONFIG_PROVE_RCU_DELAY=y, grace-period initialization, and CPU hotplug operations. This will not occur in production kernels, but really does occur in randconfig testing. Diagnosis courtesy of Steven Rostedt" * 'rcu/urgent' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/linux-rcu: rcu: Fix deadlock with CPU hotplug, RCU GP init, and timer migration rcu: Don't call wakeup() with rcu_node structure ->lock held trace: Allow idle-safe tracepoints to be called from irq
