Ok, that's already interesting information. And yes, it would probably
be interesting to see if CONFIG_PREEMPT=y but !CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU
then solves it too, to narrow it down to one but not the other..
DaveJ - what about your situation? The standard Fedora kernels use
CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY, do you have CONFIG_PREEMPT and
CONFIG_TREE_PREEMPT_RCU enabled? I think you and Sasha both saw some
RCU oddities too, no?
