    prohibit rcutorture from being compiled into the kernel
    There have been a number of instances where people have accidentally 
    rcutorture into the kernel (CONFIG_RCU_TORTURE_TEST=y), which has never been
    useful, and has often resulted in great frustration.
    The attached patch prohibits rcutorture from being compiled into the
    kernel.  It may be excluded altogether or compiled as a module.  People
    wishing to have rcutorture hammer their machine immediately upon boot
    are free to hand-edit lib/Kconfig.debug to remove the "depends on m"
    Thanks to Randy Dunlap for the trick that makes this work.

          This option provides a kernel module that runs torture tests
          on the RCU infrastructure.  The kernel module may be built
          after the fact on the running kernel to be tested, if desired.
-         Say Y here if you want RCU torture tests to start automatically
-         at boot time (you probably don't).
          Say M if you want the RCU torture tests to build as a module.
          Say N if you are unsure.
