Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 02/11] rcu: Expedite during suspend and resume only on smallish systems

From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@...ux.vnet.ibm.com>

Expedited grace periods are of dubious benefit on very large systems,
so this commit restricts their automated use during suspend and resume
to systems of 256 or fewer CPUs.
