Dropping the spinlocks means more cores; unfortunately, a quad-core
seems to be the limit. Users must divide their time between reading
history and contributing to the present: some amount of persistent
data is a must on every user's machine. Pixel seems to be heading
in the wrong direction: that's what is stressing us out.

Let's see if I can remember the candidates...
rcu_is_cpu_idle() # reversed sense from the others
rcu_is_ignored() # reversed sense from the others
rcu_is_not_active() # reversed sense from the others
Maybe I should just lock them all in a room overnight and see which
are still alive in the morning.
