Argh I never found that, because obfuscation:

ruqp = per_cpu_ptr(&rcu_dynticks.rcu_urgent_qs, rdp->cpu);
smp_store_release(ruqp, true);

I, using git grep "rcu_urgent_qs.*true" only found
rcu_request_urgent_qs_task() and sync_sched_exp_handler().

But how come KVM even triggers that case; rcu_implicit_dynticks_qs() is
for NOHZ and offline CPUs.
