Subject: [PATCH rcu 11/14] rcu: Make rcu_normal_after_boot writable again
Date: Wed, 15 Sep 2021 16:33:40 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210915233343.3906738-11-paulmck@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210915233305.GA3906641@paulmck-ThinkPad-P17-Gen-1>

From: Juri Lelli <juri.lelli@redhat.com>

Certain configurations (e.g., systems that make heavy use of netns)
need to use synchronize_rcu_expedited() to service RCU grace periods
even after boot.

Even though synchronize_rcu_expedited() has been traditionally
considered harmful for RT for the heavy use of IPIs, it is perfectly
usable under certain conditions (e.g. nohz_full).

Make rcupdate.rcu_normal_after_boot= again writeable on RT (if NO_HZ_
FULL is defined), but keep its default value to 1 (enabled) to avoid
regressions. Users who need synchronize_rcu_expedited() will boot with
rcupdate.rcu_normal_after_ boot=0 in the kernel cmdline.

Reflect the change in synchronize_rcu_expedited_wait() by removing the
WARN related to CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT.
