It does, but the problem is that s390 is still using
trace_hardirqs_off(), which calls into tracing before RCU is enabled.

The entry order between lockdep, rcu and tracing is critical.

You can't call into tracing without RCU running,
you can't call into RCU without lockdep setup,
you can't call the (old) lockdep setup without landing in tracing.
