Subject: [PATCH 0/4 v2]  Convert rhashtable to use bitlocks

This series converts rhashtable to use a per-bucket bitlock
rather than a separate array of spinlocks.
  reduces memory usage
  results in slightly fewer memory accesses
  slightly improves parallelism
  makes a configuration option unnecessary

The main change from previous version is to use a distinct type for
the pointer in the bucket which has a bit-lock in it.  This
helped find two places where rht_ptr() was missed, one
in  rhashtable_free_and_destroy() in print_ht in the test code.



NeilBrown (4):
      rhashtable: use cmpxchg() in nested_table_alloc()
      rhashtable: allow rht_bucket_var to return NULL.
      rhashtable: use bit_spin_locks to protect hash bucket.
      rhashtable: add lockdep tracking to bucket bit-spin-locks.
