Subject[PATCH] rcu: exp: Fix "must hold exp_mutex" comments for QS reporting functions
Date
Since commit d9a3da0699b2 ("rcu: Add expedited grace-period support for
preemptible RCU"), there are comments for some funtions in
rcu_report_exp_rnp()'s call-chain saying that exp_mutex or its
predecessors needs to be held.

However, exp_mutex and its predecessors are merely used for synchronize
between GPs, and it's clearly that all variables visited by those
functions are under the protection of rcu_node's ->lock. Moreover, those
functions are currently called without held exp_mutex, and seems that
doesn't introduce any trouble.

So this patch fix this problem by correcting the comments
