But that "rcuidle" state is defined on a per-tracepoint basis, whereas
"!rcu_is_watching()" is a state which depends on the current execution
context. I don't follow how the fact that this WARN_ON_ONCE() never
triggered allows us to infer anything about (!rcu_is_watching() && in_nmi()).

Thanks,

Mathieu
