Preempt-RCU: Use softirq instead of tasklets for
This patch makes RCU use softirq instead of tasklets. It also adds a memory barrier after raising the softirq inorder to ensure that the cpu sees the most recently updated value of rcu->cur while processing callbacks. The discussion of the related theoretical race pointed out by James Huang can be found here --> http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/11/20/603 Signed-off-by: Gautham R Shenoy <ego@in.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Steven Rostedt <rostedt@goodmis.org> Signed-off-by: Dipankar Sarma <dipankar@in.ibm.com> Reviewed-by: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
