Subject: [PATCH] rcu: ensure whatisRCU.txt actually says what RCU is.
Date: Thu, 19 Apr 2018 13:59:36 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

It came to my attention that the file "whatisRCU.txt" does not
manage to actually ever spell out what is RCU.

This might not be an issue for a lot of people, but we have to
assume the consumers of these documents are starting from ground
zero; otherwise they'd not be reading the docs.
