There is a rcu_cpu_stall_suppress module parameter, and you should be
able to pass in rcu_cpu_stall_suppress=1 as a boot parameter. However,
I did produce a patch that reverts the change, please see below.
I would be surprised if this did anything different than your change
that initializes rcu_cpu_stall_suppress to 1. If this patch somehow
does make a difference, please let me know.

Thanx, Paul

Using RCU's CPU Stall Detector

-CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_TIMEOUT
+RCU_SECONDS_TILL_STALL_CHECK

- This kernel configuration parameter defines the period of time
- that RCU will wait from the beginning of a grace period until it

issuing a stall warning until it issues another stall warning
