CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU: Preemptible RCU

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU has multiple definitions:

found in init/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU:

Help text

This option enables preemptible-RCU code that is common between the TREE_PREEMPT_RCU and TINY_PREEMPT_RCU implementations.

Preemptible RCU found in init/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU:

Help text

This option reduces the latency of the kernel by making certain RCU sections preemptible. Normally RCU code is non-preemptible, if this option is selected then read-only RCU sections become preemptible. This helps latency, but may expose bugs due to now-naive assumptions about each RCU read-side critical section remaining on a given CPU through its execution.
