You did have me going there for a bit. ;-)

No period (".") at the end though, unless you fix up the following
to start a new sentence.

How about the following for this last sentence?

"This commit therefore fixes the comment in rcu_gp_init() to match
the current code."

How about something like this?

... Note that this new grace period ned not wait for subsequent
online CPUs, and that RCU hooks in the CPU offlining path, when
combined with checks in this function, will handle CPUs that
are currently going offline and that go offline later.
