Since rcu_batches_completed() returns a constant, this piece of
code is not needed here. We can move it to rcutiny.c.

and remove "EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(rcu_ctrlblk);" &
"EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(rcu_bh_ctrlblk);".

redundant comments.

It seems that no one use it.

remove "EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(rcu_ctrlblk);"

remove "EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(rcu_bh_ctrlblk);"

It's an old issue.
It's not only about RCUTINY, it's also about other rcu implementations:

rcu_enter_nohz()/rcu_exit_nohz() are not called in pairs.

irq_exit() calls tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick() which calls rcu_enter_nohz(),
where is the corresponding rcu_exit_nohz()?
(or tick_nohz_restart_sched_tick())?
