This explanation doesn't seem to agree with the actual characters used.
These use 'O', 'o', and 'N', instead, with '.' for "true" in all three
cases.  And the output from the code includes a '-' after the CPU
number.

Also, this output needs matching documentation in
src/linux/Documentation/RCU/stallwarn.txt, ideally added as part of the
same commit.
