A couple of nits below, but overall:

This formulation is a bit novel for RCU.  Could we therefore please add
a comment something like this?

// The BPF JIT forms these addresses even when it doesn't call these
// functions, so provide definitions that result in runtime errors.

People have been moving towards one-liner for things like these last two:

static inline void rcu_read_lock_trace(void) { BUG(); }
static inline void rcu_read_unlock_trace(void) { BUG(); }
