Subject: Re: [PATCH v3 tip/core/rcu 0/6] Dynticks updates for 4.11


This series provides v3 of the dynticks updates:

1-4.	Abstract access to the dyntick counter, replacing the current
	open-coding of atomic operations.

5.	Check cond_resched_rcu_qs() state less often to reduce GP overhead.

6.	Adjust FQS offline checks for exact online-CPU detection. 

Changes since v2:

o	Fix RCU_TRACE() statements called out by Josh Triplett.

Changes since v1:

o	Apply feedback from Josh Triplett and Peter Zijlstra.

							Thanx, Paul
