I do agree that the two layers of batching really makes things

automatic throttling in RCU and forced quiescent state under extreme

would it make sense to have the RCU subsystems with a threshold so that when more then X items are outstanding they trigger a premption of all other CPU's ASAP (forceing the scheduling break needed to make progress on clearing RCU)? This wouldn't work in all cases, but it could significantly reduce the problem situations.

There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
