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 :-)

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.
