[PATCH] Fix bug in RCU torture test
Srivatsa Vaddagiri [Mon, 12 Dec 2005 08:37:06 +0000 (00:37 -0800)]
While doing some test of RCU torture module, I hit a OOPS in rcu_do_batch,
which was trying to processes callback of a module that was just removed.
This is because we weren't waiting long enough for all callbacks to fire.
