Subject: [PATCH RFC tip/core/rcu 0/2] NOCB kthread economization patches

Hello!

This series provides a couple of patches that reduce the number of rcuo
kthreads in cases where nr_cpu_ids is larger than the actual number of
online CPUs.

1.	Preparation patch that rationalizes RCU's creation of early-boot
	kthreads.

2.	Instead of creation rcuo kthreads for each possible CPU, create
	them only for those CPUs that have come online at least once
	since boot.

							Thanx, Paul
