rcu: Eliminate NOCBs CPU-state Kconfig options

The CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_ALL, CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_NONE, and
CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_ZERO Kconfig options are used only in testing and
are redundant with the rcu_nocbs= boot parameter.  This commit therefore
removes these three Kconfig options and adjusts the rcutorture scripts
to use the boot parameter instead.

Another approach is to offload RCU callback processing to "rcuo" kthreads
using the CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU=y Kconfig option. The specific CPUs to
offload may be selected via several methods:
1. One of three mutually exclusive Kconfig options specify a
build-time default for the CPUs to offload:
a. The CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_NONE=y Kconfig option results in
no CPUs being offloaded.
b. The CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_ZERO=y Kconfig option causes
CPU 0 to be offloaded.
c. The CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_ALL=y Kconfig option causes all
CPUs to be offloaded. Note that the callbacks will be
offloaded to "rcuo" kthreads, and that those kthreads
will in fact run on some CPU. However, this approach
gives fine-grained control on exactly which CPUs the
callbacks run on, along with their scheduling priority
(including the default of SCHED_OTHER), and it further
allows this control to be varied dynamically at runtime.
2. The "rcu_nocbs=" kernel boot parameter, which takes a comma-separated
list of CPUs and CPU ranges, for example, "1,3-5" selects CPUs 1,
3, 4, and 5. The specified CPUs will be offloaded in addition to
any CPUs specified as offloaded by CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_ZERO=y or
CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_ALL=y. This means that the "rcu_nocbs=" boot
parameter has no effect for kernels built with RCU_NOCB_CPU_ALL=y.

This option allows no-CBs CPUs (whose RCU callbacks are invoked
from kthreads rather than from softirq context) to be specified
at build time. Additional no-CBs CPUs may be specified by
the rcu_nocbs= boot parameter.
config RCU_NOCB_CPU_NONE

help
This option does not force any of the CPUs to be no-CBs CPUs.
Only CPUs designated by the rcu_nocbs= boot parameter will be
no-CBs CPUs, whose RCU callbacks will be invoked by per-CPU
kthreads whose names begin with "rcuo". All other CPUs will
invoke their own RCU callbacks in softirq context.
Select this option if you want to choose no-CBs CPUs at
boot time, for example, to allow testing of different no-CBs
configurations without having to rebuild the kernel each time.

All other CPUs will invoke their own RCU callbacks in softirq

or energy-efficiency reasons, but the real reason it exists
is to ensure that randconfig testing covers mixed systems.
config RCU_NOCB_CPU_ALL
bool "All CPUs are build_forced no-CBs CPUs"
help
This option forces all CPUs to be no-CBs CPUs. The rcu_nocbs=
boot parameter will be ignored. All CPUs' RCU callbacks will
be executed in the context of per-CPU rcuo kthreads created for
this purpose. Assuming that the kthreads whose names start with
"rcuo" are bound to "housekeeping" CPUs, this reduces OS jitter
on the remaining CPUs, but might decrease memory locality during
RCU-callback invocation, thus potentially degrading throughput.
Select this if all CPUs need to be no-CBs CPUs for real-time
or energy-efficiency reasons.
