    ok, got the mail now now:

    Paul recently ran a formal proof against all sorts of RCU details (and
    found and fixed a few obscure races that way that no-one ever
    triggered), so i'd be quite surprised if we found anything in the core
    algorithm :-)

    | | events. Oh well.

    nice debugging!

    i'm wondering why rcutorture didnt trigger it. I do run !HOTPLUG +
    RCU_PREEMPT kernels and never saw this. Nor did Paul. That aspect is
    weird.
