rcu: Make TASKS_RCU handle nohz_full= CPUs
Currently TASKS_RCU would ignore a CPU running a task in nohz_full= usermode execution. There would be neither a context switch nor a scheduling-clock interrupt to tell TASKS_RCU that the task in question had passed through a quiescent state. The grace period would therefore extend indefinitely. This commit therefore makes RCU's dyntick-idle subsystem record the task_struct structure of the task that is running in dyntick-idle mode on each CPU. The TASKS_RCU grace period can then access this information and record a quiescent state on behalf of any CPU running in dyntick-idle usermode. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <>
