SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC 5/8] rcu: Use rcu_node as temporary variable in funnel locking loop

I agree that my names could use some improvement, but given that you
called it rnp_node in the patch and rcu_node in the commit log, I would
argue that rnp_node has a Hamming-distance problem. ;-)

How about rnp_start for the formal parameter, rnp for the cursor running
up the tree, and retaining rnp_root for the root?

I considered and rejected the thought of rnp_leaf for the formal
parameter because this function is not necessarily called with a leaf
rcu_node structure.

Thanx, Paul
