Subject: [PATCH RT 4.19] rcutorture: Fix oops when selecting non-default torture_type

rcu_bh is disabled on PREEMPT_RT via a stub ops that has no name.  Thus,
if a torture_type other than "rcu" is used, rcu_torture_init() will
pass NULL to strcmp() when iterating over torture_ops[], and oops.

Signed-off-by: Scott Wood <>
With this applied to 4.19.25-rt16 and specifying torture_type=sched,
similar rcutorture failures are seen as with 5.0.3-rt1 (in which standard
torture_cype=rcu no longer has .extendables=0 and thus stresses similar
