OK, I will test with rcutorture, but I also need a Tested-by for the
specific problem at hand.

commit 9ae87e58f7c40b39ff80737e3375672f16316d23
Author: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

rcu: Make synchronize_rcu_expedited() safe for early boot

The synchronize_rcu_expedited() function does not check for early-boot
use, which can result in failures if it is invoked before the scheduler
has started. Given that the rcupdate.rcu_expedited kernel parameter
causes all calls to synchronize_rcu() to be directed instead to
synchronize_rcu_expedited(), a usage restriction does not make sense.

This commit therefore adds a rcu_scheduler_active check to
synchronize_rcu_expedited(), so that it is a no-op before the scheduler
starts. This behavior is correct because there is only a single CPU
running during that time.
