Subject: Re: [mm PATCH 2/6] RCU: softirq for RCU
Date: Tue, 16 Jan 2007 00:52:48 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070115192247.GC32238@in.ibm.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070115191909.GA32238@in.ibm.com>



Finally, RCU gets its own softirq. With it being used extensively,
the per-cpu tasklet used earlier was just a softirq with overheads.
This makes things more efficient.
