SubjectRe: [tip:x86/urgent] x86, mce: Fix RCU lockdep from mce_poll()
From
However on my machine - I do not a see a difference ?

I've this patch applied - and it still gives me the same error.
(using 6aba74f2791287ec407e0f92487a725a25908067 and this patch)

Here are my RCU config options:

# grep RCU .config
# RCU Subsystem
CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU=y
CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU=y
CONFIG_RCU_TRACE=y
CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT=64
# CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT_EXACT is not set
CONFIG_TREE_RCU_TRACE=y
CONFIG_PROVE_RCU=y
# CONFIG_PROVE_RCU_REPEATEDLY is not set
# CONFIG_SPARSE_RCU_POINTER is not set
# CONFIG_RCU_TORTURE_TEST is not set
CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_DETECTOR=y
CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_TIMEOUT=60
CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_DETECTOR_RUNNABLE=y
CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_VERBOSE=y
