[PATCH] Make RCU API inaccessible to non-GPL Linux kernel modules
Remove synchronize_kernel() (deprecated 2-APR-2005 in http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/4/3/11) and makes the RCU API inaccessible to non-GPL Linux kernel modules (as was announced more than one year ago in http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/4/3/8). Tested on x86 and ppc64. Signed-off-by: "Paul E. McKenney" <paulmck@us.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
