CONFIG_SPARSE_RCU_POINTER: RCU debugging: sparse-based checks for pointer usage

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SPARSE_RCU_POINTER:

Help text

This feature enables the __rcu sparse annotation for RCU-protected pointers. This annotation will cause sparse to flag any non-RCU used of annotated pointers. This can be helpful when debugging RCU usage. Please note that this feature is not intended to enforce code cleanliness; it is instead merely a debugging aid.

Say Y to make sparse flag questionable use of RCU-protected pointers

Say N if you are unsure.
