Subject: [PATCH 1/2] rcu/tree: Add a warning if CPU being onlined did not report QS already
Date: Wed, 29 Jul 2020 23:02:20 -0400
Message-ID: <20200730030221.705255-1-joel@joelfernandes.org> (raw)

Add a warning if CPU being onlined did not report QS already. This is to
simplify the code in the CPU onlining path and also to make clear about
where QS is reported. The act of QS reporting in CPU onlining path is
is likely unnecessary as shown by code reading and testing with
rcutorture's TREE03 and hotplug parameters.
