And events overtook this one.  Turns out that commit b58cc46c5f6b
(rcu: Don't offload callbacks unless specifically requested) was not
one of my best efforts.

I will adapt your patch 2/2 in this series and apply it with your
Signed-off-by.  Patch 1/2 is obsoleted by the current fix for
commit b58cc46c5f6b.

							Thanx, Paul
