Thanks for your patch, which is now commit 27c0f1448389baf7
("rcutorture: Make grace-period kthread report match RCU flavor being
tested").

The #ifdef expression does not match the one for the implementation
below.

Perhaps you just want to have a NULL pointer for the dummy case, instead
of instantiating a dummy static inline function and taking its address?

Different #ifdef expression.

Do you really want to define a non-static function...

... and export its symbol, from a header file?
I know the file is included only once.
