Subject[PATCH RFC 0/5] rcu doc updates for whatisRCU and checklist
Hi Paul,

Here are this week's rcu doc updates based on combing through whatisRCU and
checklists. Hopefully you agree with them. I left several old _bh and _sched
API references as is, since I don't think its a good idea to remove them till
the APIs themselves are removed, however I did remove several of them as well
(like in the first patch in this series) since I feel its better to "encourage"
new users not to use the old API.

Also do you think it makes sense for us to write coccinelle patches to check if
folks use them on new patches? Btw, I am new to coccinelle but I'd love to give
it a try, it looks exciting. I remember you saying you wanted to do that, so
that's something else you could potentially offload to me as you see fit ;-)

Thank you very much!
