Got it at last. Embarrassingly obvious. __rcu_read_lock() and
__rcu_read_unlock() are not safe to be using __this_cpu operations,
the cpu may change in between the rmw's read and write: they should
be using this_cpu operations (or, I put preempt_disable/enable in the
__rcu_read_unlock below). __this_cpus there work out fine on x86,
which was given good instructions to use; but not so well on PowerPC.

I've been running successfully for an hour now with the patch below;
but I expect you'll want to consider the tradeoffs, and may choose a
different solution.
