One other possible alternative shown below for completeness.

Thanx, Paul

Or you could do something like:

RCU_NONIDLE(complete(&cpu_died));

This would tell RCU that it needed to pay attention to this CPU for
the duration of the "complete()" function call despite the CPU's being
idle. And might allow you to dispense with the rest of the patch.
