+	rcutree.rcu_normal_wake_from_gp= [KNL]
+			Reduces a latency of synchronize_rcu() call. This approach
+			maintains its own track of synchronize_rcu() callers, so it
+			does not interact with regular callbacks because it does not
+			use a call_rcu[_hurry]() path.
+
+			Please note, the rcu_normal_wake_from_gp parameter takes effect
+			if the rcupdate.rcu_normal is active also.

+			Faster version is preferred set to 1.
+			Default is 0.

 	rcuscale.gp_async= [KNL]
 			Measure performance of asynchronous
 			grace-period primitives such as call_rcu().
