Subject: [PATCH v5 tip/core/rcu 03/16] rcu: Add synchronous grace-period waiting for RCU-tasks

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

It turns out to be easier to add the synchronous grace-period waiting
functions to RCU-tasks than to work around their absense in rcutorture,
so this commit adds them.  The key point is that the existence of
call_rcu_tasks() means that rcutorture needs an rcu_barrier_tasks().

+/**
+ * synchronize_rcu_tasks - wait until an rcu-tasks grace period has elapsed.
+ *
+ * Control will return to the caller some time after a full rcu-tasks
+ * grace period has elapsed, in other words after all currently
+ * executing rcu-tasks read-side critical sections have elapsed.  These
+ * read-side critical sections are delimited by calls to schedule(),
+ * cond_resched_rcu_qs(), idle execution, userspace execution, calls
+ * to synchronize_rcu_tasks(), and (in theory, anyway) cond_resched().
+ *
+ * This is a very specialized primitive, intended only for a few uses in
+ * tracing and other situations requiring manipulation of function
+ * preambles and profiling hooks.  The synchronize_rcu_tasks() function
+ * is not (yet) intended for heavy use from multiple CPUs.
+ *
+ * Note that this guarantee implies further memory-ordering guarantees.
+ * On systems with more than one CPU, when synchronize_rcu_tasks() returns,
+ * each CPU is guaranteed to have executed a full memory barrier since the
+ * end of its last RCU-tasks read-side critical section whose beginning
+ * preceded the call to synchronize_rcu_tasks().  In addition, each CPU
+ * having an RCU-tasks read-side critical section that extends beyond
+ * the return from synchronize_rcu_tasks() is guaranteed to have executed
+ * a full memory barrier after the beginning of synchronize_rcu_tasks()
+ * and before the beginning of that RCU-tasks read-side critical section.
+ * Note that these guarantees include CPUs that are offline, idle, or
+ * executing in user mode, as well as CPUs that are executing in the kernel.
+ *
+ * Furthermore, if CPU A invoked synchronize_rcu_tasks(), which returned
+ * to its caller on CPU B, then both CPU A and CPU B are guaranteed
+ * to have executed a full memory barrier during the execution of
+ * synchronize_rcu_tasks() -- even if CPU A and CPU B are the same CPU
+ * (but again only if the system has more than one CPU).
