    rcu: Separate the RCU synchronization types and APIs into <linux/rcupdate_wait.h> · f9411ebe
    Ingo Molnar authored
    So rcupdate.h is a pretty complex header, in particular it includes
    <linux/completion.h> which includes <linux/wait.h> - creating a
    dependency that includes <linux/wait.h> in <linux/sched.h>,
    which prevents the isolation of <linux/sched.h> from the derived
    <linux/wait.h> header.
    Solve part of the problem by decoupling rcupdate.h from completions:
    this can be done by separating out the rcu_synchronize types and APIs,
    and updating their usage sites.
    Since this is a mostly RCU-internal types this will not just simplify
    <linux/sched.h>'s dependencies, but will make all the hundreds of
    .c files that include rcupdate.h but not completions or wait.h build
    ( For rcutiny this means that two dependent APIs have to be uninlined,
      but that shouldn't be much of a problem as they are rare variants. )
