If I have the right email thread associated with the right fixes, these
commits in -rcu should be what you are looking for:

73b658b6b7d5 ("rcu: Prevent lockdep-RCU splats on lock acquisition/release")
626b79aa935a ("x86/smpboot: Move rcu_cpu_starting() earlier")

And maybe this one as well:

3a6f638cb95b ("rcu,ftrace: Fix ftrace recursion")

Please let me know if these commits do not fix things.

Thanx, Paul
