My memory on this is that the only user, that required this early
behaviour, was kprobe which was recently changed to not need it anymore.
Which makes the test as the only user that remains. Therefore I thought
that this test will be moved to later position (when ksoftirqd is up and
running) and that there is no more requirement for RCU to be completely
up that early in the boot process.

Did I miss anything?
