Quoting Paul [1]:

 "Given that a quick (and perhaps error-prone) search of the uses
  of rcu_assign_pointer() in v5.1 didn't find a single use of the
  return value, let's please instead change the documentation and
  implementation to eliminate the return value."

Matthew, Sasha:

The patch is based on -rcu/dev; I took the liberty of applying the
same change to your #defines in:

 tools/testing/radix-tree/linux/rcupdate.h
 tools/include/linux/rcu.h

but I admit that I'm not familiar with their uses: please shout if
you have any objections with it.

Please add the "void", similar to synchronize_rcu() above.

These two each fit nicely on one line:

	#define rcu_assign_pointer(p, v) do { (p) = (v); } while (0)
	#define RCU_INIT_POINTER(p, v)   do { (p) = (v); } while (0)
