Merge branch 'for-mingo' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/linux-rcu into core/rcu
Pull RCU updates from Paul E. McKenney: - Documentation updates, yet again just simple changes. - Miscellaneous fixes, including a change to call_rcu()'s rcu_head alignment check. - Security-motivated list consistency checks, which are disabled by default behind DEBUG_LIST. - Torture-test updates. Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@kernel.org>
