Thinking a bit more about this, I am a bit worried by other uses of
ACCESS_ONCE(ptr->field)

rcu_dereference(ptr->field) intent is to reload ptr->field every time
from memory.

Do we really need a

#define ACCESS_FIELD_ONCE(PTR, FIELD) (((volatile typeof(*PTR) *)PTR)->FIELD)

#define ACCESS_ONCE(x) (*(volatile typeof(x) *)&(x)) 

and change all rcu_dererence(ptr->field) occurrences ?

I probably miss something obvious.

Anyway, following patch seems to also solve the problem, I need a sleep to understand why.
