Stall warnings used to be disabled by default, so perhaps you started
seeing this when that changed.

There is always the rcu_cpu_stall_suppress module parameter, which can
be set (to 1) from the boot command line or from sysfs. This will
stop RCU from complaining about any stalls, though it won't do anything
about the stall itself.

Yep, the rcu_cpu_stall_suppress module parameter is the first thing
mentioned in Documentation/RCU/stallwarn.txt. ;-)

Thanx, Paul
