/*
- * An indirect pointer (root->rnode pointing to a radix_tree_node, rather
- * than a data item) is signalled by the low bit set in the root->rnode
- * pointer.
- *
- * In this case root->height is > 0, but the indirect pointer tests are
- * needed for RCU lookups (because root->height is unreliable). The only
- * time callers need worry about this is when doing a lookup_slot under
- * RCU.
- *
- * Indirect pointer in fact is also used to tag the last pointer of a node
- * when it is shrunk, before we rcu free the node. See shrink code for
- * details.
+ * Entries in the radix tree have the low bit set if they refer to a
+ * radix_tree_node. If the low bit is clear then the entry is user data.
+ *
+ * We also use the low bit to indicate that the slot will be freed in the
+ * next RCU idle period, and users need to re-walk the tree to find the
+ * new slot for the index that they were looking for. See the comment in
+ * radix_tree_shrink() for details.
