NAME

       synchronize_rcu - wait until a grace period has elapsed.

SYNOPSIS

       void synchronize_rcu  (void);

ARGUMENTS

       void   no arguments

DESCRIPTION

       Control  will  return to the caller some time after a full grace period
       has elapsed, in other words after all currently executing RCU read-side
       critical  sections  have completed. RCU read-side critical sections are
       delimited by rcu_read_lock and rcu_read_unlock, and may be nested.

       If your read-side code is not protected by rcu_read_lock, do -not-  use
       synchronize_rcu.
