[PATCH v7 06/11] percpu-refcount: Use call_rcu_flush() for atomic switch

From: Joel Fernandes (Google)
Date: Mon Oct 03 2022 - 22:43:05 EST

call_rcu() changes to save power will slow down the percpu refcounter's
"per-CPU to atomic switch" path. The primitive uses RCU when switching to
atomic mode. The enqueued async callback wakes up waiters waiting in the
percpu_ref_switch_waitq. Due to this, per-CPU refcount users will slow down,
such as blk_pre_runtime_suspend().

Use the call_rcu_flush() API instead which reverts to the old behavior.
