This is new in rcutorture as well.  It is complaining that we just got
done with a stutter interval (in which torturing temporarily stops)
but not everything has progressed through the callback chain to be freed.
And in this case it is happening during rcutorture shutdown, so I need
to check the callback -- I might need end-of-run checks in that WARN_ON().
