In a63fc6b7 ("rcu: Upgrade rcu_swap_protected() to rcu_replace_pointer()")
a new helper macro named rcu_replace_pointer() was introduced to
simplify code requiring to switch an rcu pointer to a new value while
extracting the old one.

Use rcu_replace_pointer() where appropriate to make code slimer.

Please use the reference style 'commit a63fc6b75cca ("rcu: Upgrade 
rcu_swap_protected() to rcu_replace_pointer()")' in the future [1]. checkpatch 
will also report something like this when it detects a short commit id:

    ERROR: Please use git commit description style 'commit <12+ chars of sha1> ("<title line>")' - ie: 'commit a63fc6b75cca ("rcu: Upgrade rcu_swap_protected() to rcu_replace_pointer()")'

I will change this for you.

To avoid problems with a (potentially) backported patch in the stable
kernels - please #undef rcu_replace_pointer first. I will do this for you.

Applied.

Thanks,
