Seems that's not used in the patch.

So that's not used in this patch but it's interesting for me
to backport "rcu: Detect illegal rcu dereference in extended quiescent state".

The above should be read from a preempt disabled section though
(remember "rcu: Fix preempt-unsafe debug check of rcu extended quiescent state")

Those functions should probably lay in a separate patch. But I don't mind
much keeping the things as is and use these APIs in my next patches though.
I'll just fix the preempt enabled thing above.
