Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 6/9] rcu: Add a hlist_nulls_unhashed_lockless() function
Date
From: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@kernel.org>

This commit adds an hlist_nulls_unhashed_lockless() to allow lockless
checking for whether or note an hlist_nulls_node is hashed or not.
While in the area, this commit also adds a docbook comment to the existing
hlist_nulls_unhashed() function.
