rcu: Remove the RCU_KTHREAD_PRIO Kconfig option

Anything that can be done with the RCU_KTHREAD_PRIO Kconfig option can
also be done with the rcutree.kthread_prio kernel boot parameter.
This commit therefore removes this Kconfig option.

This option specifies the SCHED_FIFO priority value that will be
assigned to the rcuc/n and rcub/n threads and is also the value
used for RCU_BOOST (if enabled). If you are working with a
real-time application that has one or more CPU-bound threads
running at a real-time priority level, you should set
RCU_KTHREAD_PRIO to a priority higher than the highest-priority
real-time CPU-bound application thread. The default RCU_KTHREAD_PRIO
value of 1 is appropriate in the common case, which is real-time
applications that do not have any CPU-bound threads.
Some real-time applications might not have a single real-time
thread that saturates a given CPU, but instead might have
multiple real-time threads that, taken together, fully utilize
that CPU. In this case, you should set RCU_KTHREAD_PRIO to
a priority higher than the lowest-priority thread that is
conspiring to prevent the CPU from running any non-real-time
tasks. For example, if one thread at priority 10 and another
thread at priority 5 are between themselves fully consuming
the CPU time on a given CPU, then RCU_KTHREAD_PRIO should be
set to priority 6 or higher.
Specify the real-time priority, or take the default if unsure.
