Is your only problem the fact that tracepoints include rcupdate.h ? This
can easily be solved by moving rcu_read_(un)lock_sched_notrace to a
rcu-update-<insert meaningful name here> and include this header in
rcupdate.h and tracepoint.h.

We could keep the indirection layer you proposed for synchronize_sched()
though, even if it adds an unnecessary function call. It's a slow path
anyway.

If by doing these modifications we succeed in keeping the "void"
parameters working _and_ make your stuff to compile, I think we would
have done something great. :-)
