Sorry, I missed that.

READ/WRITE_ONCE won't magically solve such races. If two CPUs enter
simultaneously in do_tag_recovery(), they'd both read 'reported' as
false and both print the fault info.

If you really care about this race, you need to atomically both read and
update the variable with an xchg() or cmpxchg().
