   Apologies i was offline for a bit so dont know the history here.
   I see a lot of move to rcu. There are benefits to using RCU in certain
   cases (example occasional list edit with a lot more reads). Why does
   there  seem to be a massive migration it seems to RCU? Something wrong
   with the linked lists?
   
If you only need one of two synchronization primitives, why
have two? :-)
