While it does compile, it hits the usual Alpha snag (3.3 onwards)
on boot:

PCI host bridge to bus 0000:00

This is not an RCU problem, though. AFAICT.

I tried the patches with 3.2.28 (the latest vanilla kernel that
works on this machine _at all_) but those don't have an RCU
implementation and thus, the compile fails:

CC arch/alpha/kernel/process.o
arch/alpha/kernel/process.c: In function 'cpu_idle':
arch/alpha/kernel/process.c:59: error: implicit declaration of function 'rcu_idle_enter'
arch/alpha/kernel/process.c:63: error: implicit declaration of function 'rcu_idle_exit'
make[1]: *** [arch/alpha/kernel/process.o] Error 1
make: *** [arch/alpha/kernel] Error 2

Tobias
