Good catch, and I applied this patch. I did rework the commit log
a bit, so please look it over to make sure I didn't mess it up.

Thanx, Paul


commit 52c4e689efd975f5383895b1bc1b91bc90fdd372

rcu: Produce last "CleanupMore" trace only if late-breaking request

Currently the tree RCU clean-up code records a "CleanupMore" trace
event in response to late-arriving grace-period requests even if the
grace period was already requested. This makes "CleanupMore" show up an
extra time (in addition to once for each rcu_node structure that was
previously marked with the request) for no good reason. This commit
therefore avoids emitting this trace message unless the only if the only
request for this next grace period arrived during or after the cleanup
scan of the rcu_node structures.
