Meanwhile, to not hold up the other RCU changes, I've reconstructed core/rcu with
the following branches:
fixes.2015.02.23a: Miscellaneous fixes
torture.2015.02.23a: Torture-test updates
i.e. the doc.2015.02.23a bits that need reworking are left out.
I'll send an updated pull request in a few minutes.
