Subject[GIT PULL rcu/next] RCU commits for 4.18
Hello, Ingo!

This pull request contains the following changes:

1. Updates to the handling of expedited grace periods, perhaps most
notably parallelizing their initialization. Other changes
include fixes from Boqun Feng.

2. Miscellaneous fixes. These include an nvme fix from Nitzan Carmi
that I am carrying because it depends on a new SRCU function
cleanup_srcu_struct_quiesced(). This branch also includes fixes
from Byungchul Park and Yury Norov. Note that several patches
were deferred to the v4.19 merge window due to late location
of bugs and late determination of a need for restructuring.

3. Updates to reduce lock contention in the rcu_node combining tree.
These are in preparation for the consolidation of RCU-bh,
RCU-preempt, and RCU-sched into a single flavor, which was
requested by Linus Torvalds in response to a security flaw
whose root cause included confusion between the multiple flavors
of RCU. There will be another series of contention-reduction
patches in the next merge window, hopefully accompanied by the
consolidation itself.

4. Torture-test updates that save their users some time and effort.

The nvme patch called out in #2 above has a conflict with a commit in
Linus's tree, which was reported by Stephen Rothwell in the course of
his -next testing. He is carrying a resolution to this conflict as
reported on LKML here:

This resolution looks good to me.

All of these changes have been subjected to 0day Test Robot and -next
testing, and are available in the git repository at:

Merge branches 'exp.2018.05.15a', 'fixes.2018.05.15a', 'lock.2018.05.15a' and 'torture.2018.05.15a' into HEAD (2018-05-15 10:33:05 -0700)

This merge commit is quite recent, however, the changes are exactly
the same as the previous merge commit (434533a52e8d) dated April 30th.
The only difference is the addition of Nick Piggin's Tested-by to all
of the commit logs (thank you, Nick!).
