Hi Oleg,
Slightly unrelated to the patch,
I tried hard to understand this comment below in percpu_down_read() but no dice.

I do understand how rcu sync and percpu rwsem works, however the comment
below didn't make much sense to me. For one, there's no readers_fast anymore
so I did not follow what readers_fast means. Could the comment be updated to
reflect latest changes?
Also could you help understand how is a writer not able to change
sem->state and count the per-cpu read counters at the same time as the
comment tries to say?

	/*
	 * We are in an RCU-sched read-side critical section, so the writer
	 * cannot both change sem->state from readers_fast and start checking
	 * counters while we are here. So if we see !sem->state, we know that
	 * the writer won't be checking until we're past the preempt_enable()
	 * and that once the synchronize_rcu() is done, the writer will see
	 * anything we did within this RCU-sched read-size critical section.
	 */

Also,
I guess we could get rid of all of the gp_ops struct stuff now that since all
the callbacks are the same now. I will post that as a follow-up patch to this
series.

thanks!

 - Joel
