Does it depend on anything not currently in -next? My build fails with

kernel/rcu/tree.c: In function ‘rcu_report_qs_rdp’:
kernel/rcu/tree.c:2099:6: error: ‘struct rcu_data’ has no member named ‘gpwrap’
rdp->gpwrap) {

On an unrelated subject, I've tried disabling preemption, and am seeing different
stalls even when I have the testfiles fuzzing in trinity disabled (which means I'm
not seeing hangs in the preempt case):
