Oh, sorry for this.. I should've add "cpuacct" in the subject. The
"linux-next" prefix was added because I thought any patch based on
the linux-next branch should add this prefix.

follow the usage in RCU Documentation.

Maybe changes should be made in RCU code to make rcu_dereference_check()
more flexible as you expressed in the conversation with Paul.
