Subject: [PATCH 00/13] rcu/nocb updates v2 

It's a v2 of the previous set (
minus the patches already applied in rcu/dev. And this is based on 
latest rcu/dev.

Changelog since v1:

"rcu/nocb: Fix potential missed nocb_timer rearm"
	* Remove nocb_defer_wakeup reset from do_nocb_deferred_wakeup_common() (paulmck)
	* Only reset/del if the timer is actually armed
	* Add secondary potential cause for missed rearm in the changelog

"rcu/nocb: Disable bypass when CPU isn't completely offloaded"
	* Improve comments on state machine (paulmck)
	* Add comment (a full quote from Paul) explaining why early flush is enough (paulmck)
	* Move sanity check to the very end of deoffloading (paulmck)
	* Clarify some comments about nocb locking on de-offloading (paulmck)

"rcu/nocb: Remove stale comment above rcu_segcblist_offload()"
	* New patch, reported by (paulmck)

"rcu/nocb: Merge nocb_timer to the rdp leader"
	* Remove rcu_running_nocb_timer() and its use in rcu_rdp_is_offloaded()
	  debugging since the timer doesn't refer to any rdp offloading anymore.
	* Only delete nocb_timer when armed, in nocb_gp_wait()
	* Clarify some comments about nocb locking on de-offloading (paulmck)
	* Remove stale code "re-enabling" nocb timer on offloading. Not necessary
	  anymore and even buggy.

"timer: Revert "timer: Add timer_curr_running()""
	* New patch
