[GIT PULL] RCU updates for v4.15




Linus,

Please pull the latest core-rcu-for-linus git tree from:

   git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git core-rcu-for-linus

   # HEAD: 72bc286b81d21404cdfecddf76b64c7163aac764 Merge branch 'for-mingo' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/paulmck/linux-rcu into core/rcu

The main changes in this cycle are:

  - Documentation updates
  - RCU CPU stall-warning updates
  - Torture-test updates
  - Miscellaneous fixes

Size wise the biggest updates are to documentation. Excluding documentation the 
diffstat becomes:

 18 files changed, 205 insertions(+), 79 deletions(-)

... and most of the code increase comes from a single commit which expands 
debugging:

  9b9500da8150: rcu: Make RCU CPU stall warnings check for irq-disabled CPUs

 Thanks,

	Ingo
