Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 0/13] Miscellaneous fixes for 4.4

Hello!

This series contains miscellaneous fixes:

1.	Export sched_setscheduler_nocheck() so that the new locktorture
	rtmutex_lock tests can be run as modules, courtesy of Davidlohr
	Bueso.

2.	Use rcu_callback_t in call_rcu*() and friends to improve
	readability and to make cscope able to find them, courtesy of
	Boqun Feng.

3.	Use call_rcu_func_t to replace explicit type equivalents when
	defining RCU callback functions, courtesy of Boqun Feng.

4.	Don't unnecessarily disable preemption for Tiny and Tree
	RCU readers (only for preemptible RCU readers), courtesy
	of Boqun Feng.

5.	Eliminate boot-time panic when a silly boot-time fanout is
	specified.

6.	Add online/offline info to help debug stall-warning messages.

7.	Move preemption disabling out of __srcu_read_lock() into
	srcu_read_lock().

8.	Finish folding ->fqs_state into ->gp_state, courtesy of Petr Mladek.

9.	Correct comment for values of ->gp_state field.

10.	Add rcu_pointer_handoff() to allow explicit marking of handing
	off protection from RCU to some other means, such as locking
	or reference counting.

11.	Make list_entry_rcu() use lockless_dereference(), courtesy
	of Patrick Marlier.  Despite the fact that this patch
	does nothing more than eliminate a single store and a
	single load of an unshared stack variable it nevertheless
	manages to provide a measurable performance increase:

12.	Remove deprecated rcu_lockdep_assert().

							Thanx, Paul
