Yep, this is me whining that rcu_enter_nohz() was called before the
irq nesting count (->dynticks_nesting) had dropped to zero. In other
words, either I am mis-counting interrupts or we entered some irq
handler and then somehow never left it, but still managed to get
to process-level execution. Most likely that I am miscounting
somehow.

I suppose that I could remove the WARN_ON_ONCE() and pretend that all
was well, but... ;-)

Thanx, Paul
