+ This option causes RCU to attempt to accelerate grace periods
+ in order to allow the final CPU to enter dynticks-idle state
+ more quickly. On the other hand, this option increases the
+ overhead of the dynticks-idle checking, particularly on systems
+ with large numbers of CPUs.
+ Say Y if energy efficiency is critically important, particularly
+ if you have relatively few CPUs.
