Now that kfree_rcu() special casing have been removed from tree RCU,
remove kfree_call_rcu_nobatch() since it is not needed.

Now -this- one qualifies as a nice negative delta!  ;-)

A few things below, please fix in next version.

This really needs to be in the previous patch until such time as Tiny RCU
no longer needs the restriction.

And this also needs to be in an earlier patch.  Bisectability and all that!

Are we really guaranteed that there will be an eventual kfree_rcu()?
More of a worry for Tiny RCU than for Tree RCU, but still could be
annoying for someone trying to debug a memory leak.

Hi Paul,

I think this is the only contentious patch preventing my resend of the
series, let me know what you think, I replied below:

I was only going by whatever is already committed to the -rcu dev branch. The
series is based on the -dev branch.

The original patch adding the kfree_rcu() batching is already merged into the
-rcu dev branch (that version just had 1 list, this series adds multiple
lists).

In the above diff, I just added the WARN_ON_ONCE() as extra checking for tree
RCU kfree batching. It has nothing to do with tiny RCU per-se. Should I
submit the WARN_ON_ONCE() as a separate patch then?

To prevent confusion, could you let me know if I am supposed to submitting
patches against a branch other than the dev branch?

Same comment as above, the original patch adding the schedule_delayed_work()
is already merged into the -dev branch. This series is based on top of that.
The reason I had to rearrange &krcp->monitor_todo code above is because we no
longer have kfree_rcu_no_batch() which this patch removes.

thanks,

 - Joel
