CONFIG_TASKS_TRACE_RCU_READ_MB: Tasks Trace RCU readers use memory barriers in user and idle

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_TASKS_TRACE_RCU_READ_MB:

Help text

Use this option to further reduce the number of IPIs sent to CPUs executing in userspace or idle during tasks trace RCU grace periods. Given that a reasonable setting of the rcupdate.rcu_task_ipi_delay kernel boot parameter eliminates such IPIs for many workloads, proper setting of this Kconfig option is important mostly for aggressive real-time installations and for battery-powered devices, hence the default chosen above.

Say Y here if you hate IPIs. Say N here if you hate read-side memory barriers. Take the default if you are unsure.
