Hey, I was hoping!

There have not been any changes to __rcu_pending() itself between
v3.3-rc1 and v3.4-rc2, so I must confess to be a bit puzzled at
the difference in reliability. Would you have any debug symbols
with which to map the panic back to the source code? Perhaps gcc
is aggressively inlining.

Also, what kind of panic was this? NULL pointer? Illegal instruction?
Something else?

Given that this now happens on boot, could you please bisect it?

Thanx, Paul
