    Subject[PATCH RFC tip/core/rcu 15/41] rcu: Check for callback invocation from offline CPUs
    From: "Paul E. McKenney" <>

    Because quiescent states are now reported from offline CPUs in
    CPU_DYING state, there is some possibility that such a CPU might
    note the end of a grace period and attempt to start invoking
    callbacks. This would be a very bad thing, and is supposed to
    be prevented by the fact that the CPU_DYING CPU gets rid of all
    its callbacks before reporting the quiescent state. However,
    there is other CPU-offline code in the kernel, and it is quite
    possible that someone will invoke RCU core processing from that
    code. Therefore, this commit adds a warning for this case.
