[PATCH] Deprecate synchronize_kernel, GPL replacement
The synchronize_kernel() primitive is used for quite a few different purposes: waiting for RCU readers, waiting for NMIs, waiting for interrupts, and so on. This makes RCU code harder to read, since synchronize_kernel() might or might not have matching rcu_read_lock()s. This patch creates a new synchronize_rcu() that is to be used for RCU readers and a new synchronize_sched() that is used for the rest. These two new primitives currently have the same implementation, but this is might well change with additional real-time support. Both new primitives are GPL-only, the old primitive is deprecated.
