I apologize for fat-fingering this.
Since I've sent one too many emails in this thread already, I suppose on more can not do much harm :)

This time with Reviewed-by Lai Jiangshan added and Reviewed-by Josh Triplett corrected.

Subject: [PATCH 2/3] rcu: Remove stale comment in tree.c

This commit removes a stale comment in rcu/tree.c which was left out when some
code was moved around previously in the commit

2036d94a7b61 ("rcu:  Rework detection of use of RCU by offline CPUs")

For reference, the following updated comment exists a few lines below this which
means the same.

/* Remove the outgoing CPU from the masks in the rcu_node hierarchy. */
