Ah. Found it. Your tree and current linux-next include this commit:

commit 1217ed1ba5c67393293dfb0f03c353b118dadeb4
tree a765356c8418e134de85fd05d9fe6eda41de859c tree | snapshot
parent 29ce831000081dd757d3116bf774aafffc4b6b20 commit | diff
rcu: permit rcu_read_unlock() to be called while holding runqueue locks
which includes this chunk:

@@ -1546,8 +1531,8 @@ static void rcu_cpu_kthread_timer(unsigned long arg)

raw_spin_lock_irqsave(&rnp->lock, flags);
rnp->wakemask |= rdp->grpmask;
- invoke_rcu_node_kthread(rnp);
raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore(&rnp->lock, flags);
+ invoke_rcu_node_kthread(rnp);
}

but that was committed 4 days ago, and Andrew pulled linux-next for the -mmotm
6 days ago, so it's not in there. The *rest* of your recent commits appear to
be in there though. So that explains the patch failure to apply.
