Subject: [PATCH tip/core/rcu 0/5] Documentation changes for 4.4


This series contains a few documentation updates:

1.	Clearly state that RCU readers have no acquire/release semantics.

2.	Call out slow consoles as a cause of stall warnings.

3.	Update whatisRCU() to show rcu_dereference_protected(),
	courtesy of Jason A. Donenfeld.

4.	Catch up list of torture_type options.

5.	Add lockless_dereference() to memory-barriers.txt.

							Thanx, Paul
