Except that the call to kfree_rcu() below has two arguments, and thus
provides a link for queuing the callback.  It will never directly invoke
synchronize_rcu().  It is only the single-argument variant of kfree_rcu()
that might invoke synchronize_rcu().

Or are you seeing lockdep or might-sleep failures with the current code?
If so, please post the relevant portions of the console output.

							Thanx, Paul
