Nice!!! It is very good to see you correctly using the rcu_torture_ops
facility correctly!

And this could be good for your own testing, and I am happy to pull it
in for that purpose (given it being fixed, having a good commit log,
and so on). After all, TREE10 is quite similar -- not part of CFLIST,
but useful for certain types of focused testing.

However, it would be very good to get call_rcu_lazy() testing going
more generally, and in particular in TREE01 where offloading changes
dynamically. A good way to do this is to add a .call_lazy() component
to the rcu_torture_ops structure, and check for it in a manner similar
to that done for the .deferred_free() component. Including adding a
gp_normal_lazy module parameter. This would allow habitual testing
on a few scenarios and focused lazy testing on all of them via the
--bootargs parameter.

On the total-gps=0, the usual suspicion would be that the lazy callbacks
never got invoked. It looks like you were doing about a two-minute run,
so maybe a longer run? Though weren't they supposed to kick in at 15
seconds or so? Or did this value of zero come about because this run
used exactly 300 grace periods?

Thanx, Paul
