Good point, queued!  I reworked the commit log as follows, is this OK?

							Thanx, Paul

commit c006ffd7b607f8ee216f6a7a6d845b9514881e92
Author: Waiman Long <longman@redhat.com>

    rcu: Force inlining of rcu_read_lock()
    
    When debugging options are turned on, the rcu_read_lock() function
    might not be inlined. This results in lockdep's print_lock() function
    printing "rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70" instead of rcu_read_lock()'s caller.
    For example:
    
    [   10.579995] =============================
    [   10.584033] WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
    [   10.588074] 4.18.0.memcg_v2+ #1 Not tainted
    [   10.593162] -----------------------------
    [   10.597203] include/linux/rcupdate.h:281 Illegal context switch in
    RCU read-side critical section!
    [   10.606220]
    [   10.606220] other info that might help us debug this:
    [   10.606220]
    [   10.614280]
    [   10.614280] rcu_scheduler_active = 2, debug_locks = 1
    [   10.620853] 3 locks held by systemd/1:
    [   10.624632]  #0: (____ptrval____) (&type->i_mutex_dir_key#5){.+.+}, at: lookup_slow+0x42/0x70
    [   10.633232]  #1: (____ptrval____) (rcu_read_lock){....}, at: rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70
    [   10.640954]  #2: (____ptrval____) (rcu_read_lock){....}, at: rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70
    
    These "rcu_read_lock+0x0/0x70" strings are not providing any useful
    information.  This commit therefore forces inlining of the rcu_read_lock()
    function so that rcu_read_lock()'s caller is instead shown.
