Subject[PATCH tip/core/urgent 1/2] rcu: Prevent soft-lockup complaints about no-CBs CPUs
Date
From: Paul Gortmaker <paul.gortmaker@windriver.com>

The wait_event() at the head of the rcu_nocb_kthread() can result in
soft-lockup complaints if the CPU in question does not register RCU
callbacks for an extended period. This commit therefore changes
the wait_event() to a wait_event_interruptible().
