Anna-Maria was talking about this to me a long time ago, I though we
fixed that. But since your patch targets v4.19 it is not the case.
As far v4.19 goes, I think it can go in but this is up to Steven now.

Does this still apply to 5.0-RT? The RCU was greatly reworked so it may
no longer apply and just work. However the "random context" in
rcutorture gives me a headache right now…
