The only function of this if block is to fill the content of the
trace event, correct?

What about doing:

if (trace_rcu_unlock_preempted_task_enabled() &&
rcu_preempt_has_tasks(rnp)) {

instead? The trace_rcu_unlock_preempted_task_enabled() is a static
branch (aka jump_label), which would make the above a constant branch
when tracing is not enabled, and would keep this from adding any extra
overhead.
