Does "Read Copy Update" mean something to you? I don't think it says any more than "RCU." In fact, since I know what RCU is, I would have needed the text to explain that "Read Copy Update" means RCU. A couple of sentences definining RCU are definitely called for, but the etymology of the acronym alone would be pretty useless.
