rcu: Add a module parameter to force use of expedited RCU primitives
There have been some embedded applications that would benefit from use of expedited grace-period primitives. In some ways, this is similar to synchronize_net() doing either a normal or an expedited grace period depending on lock state, but with control outside of the kernel. This commit therefore adds rcu_expedited boot and sysfs parameters that cause the kernel to substitute expedited primitives for the normal grace-period primitives. [ paulmck: Add trace/event/rcu.h to kernel/srcu.c to avoid build error. Get rid of infinite loop through contention path.] Signed-off-by: Antti P Miettinen <amiettinen@nvidia.com> Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
