I haven't been able to reproduce the problem on hardware either.
However, I don't have CONFIG_PREEMPT enabled like Dave and our RCU
options seem to be different:

$ diff -u adamo.config ../linux/.config | grep RCU
# RCU Subsystem
-CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU=y
-CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU=y
+CONFIG_TREE_RCU=y
+# CONFIG_PREEMPT_RCU is not set
# CONFIG_RCU_TRACE is not set
CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT=64
# CONFIG_RCU_FANOUT_EXACT is not set
+# CONFIG_RCU_FAST_NO_HZ is not set
# CONFIG_TREE_RCU_TRACE is not set
-CONFIG_RCU_BOOST=y
-CONFIG_RCU_BOOST_PRIO=1
-CONFIG_RCU_BOOST_DELAY=500
-CONFIG_DEBUG_OBJECTS_RCU_HEAD=y
-CONFIG_PROVE_RCU=y
-# CONFIG_PROVE_RCU_REPEATEDLY is not set
-CONFIG_SPARSE_RCU_POINTER=y
+# CONFIG_SPARSE_RCU_POINTER is not set
# CONFIG_RCU_TORTURE_TEST is not set
CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_TIMEOUT=60
-CONFIG_RCU_CPU_STALL_VERBOSE=y
