depends on PREEMPT
help
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.

help
This option controls the fanout of hierarchical implementations
of RCU, allowing RCU to work efficiently on machines with
large numbers of CPUs. This value must be at least the cube
root of NR_CPUS, which allows NR_CPUS up to 32,768 for 32-bit
systems and up to 262,144 for 64-bit systems.
Select a specific number if testing RCU itself.
Take the default if unsure.
config RCU_FANOUT_EXACT

help
This option forces use of the exact RCU_FANOUT value specified,
regardless of imbalances in the hierarchy. This is useful for
testing RCU itself, and might one day be useful on systems with
strong NUMA behavior.
Without RCU_FANOUT_EXACT, the code will balance the hierarchy.
Say N if unsure.
