I did a 'git bisect run make drivers/mtd/bcm47xxpart.o' now, which pointed to
0bc2d534708b ("rcu: Refactor #includes from include/linux/rcupdate.h").

That commit seems reasonable, it was just bad luck that it caused this
regression. The commit is currently in the rcu/rcu/next branch of tip.git,
so Paul could merge the patch there.
