User-Level Implementations of Read-Copy Update has appeared in the February 2012 issue of IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems. Many thanks to everyone involved, especially co-authors Jon Walpole, Michel R. Dagenais, Alan Stern (who did the symbolic-logic heavy lifting), and Mathieu Desnoyers (who is the lead author). Mathieu also managed to convince me to go once more into the breach, which was not an easy task given that I received my license to collect RCU rejection notices all the way back in 1995. ;-)

So it does feel very good to see this finally hit print!

Re: > if pthreads programs can make use of user-level RCU, the answer is "yes".
Possibly. It would depend on the details of the pthreads implementation. My guess is that better scalability and performance would result from modifying the application to use RCU, but the use of RCU to implement the pthreads API might be well worth looking into.
