Just to make sure I understand, the concern is that someone might have
booted with rcupdate.rcu_cpu_stall_suppress=1 (thus suppressing the RCU
CPU stall debugging warnings implemented later in check_cpu_stall()),
but later decided to also boot with rcutree.rcu_kick_kthreads=1 (thus
enabling kicking kthreads which check for RCU's grace-period kthreads
not being properly awakened)?

My immediate reaction is that if there is not much point in specifying
both rcutree.rcu_kick_kthreads=1 and rcupdate.rcu_cpu_stall_suppress=1.
But is there some use case that I am missing?
