I am not sure it really needs, but this doesn't matter.

tracehook_handle_notify_resume() can do "anything", say it can run the
works queued by systemtap. I don't think it should delay synchronize_srcu().
And may be this is simply unsafe, even if I don't think a task_work can
ever call synchronize_srcu(kvm->srcu) directly.
