Apologies, Stephen -- I do seem to be your problem child at the moment!

The desried commit is "rcu: Make rcu_nmi_enter() handle nesting", correct?
Once confirmed or corrected, I will place this commit at the base of my
3.20 tree, which will rebase it one last time, then avoid rebasing it
in the future, at least assuming no more bugs in that particular commit.

Thanx, Paul
