rcu: Remove kfree_rcu() special casing and lazy-callback handling
This commit removes kfree_rcu() special-casing and the lazy-callback handling from Tree RCU. It moves some of this special casing to Tiny RCU, the removal of which will be the subject of later commits. This results in a nice negative delta. Suggested-by: Paul E.

In kernels with CONFIG_RCU_FAST_NO_HZ, more information is printed
for each CPU:
- 0: (64628 ticks this GP) idle=dd5/3fffffffffffffff/0 softirq=82/543 last_accelerate: a345/d342 Nonlazy posted: ..D
+ 0: (64628 ticks this GP) idle=dd5/3fffffffffffffff/0 softirq=82/543 last_accelerate: a345/d342 dyntick_enabled: 1
The "last_accelerate:" prints the low-order 16 bits (in hex) of the
jiffies counter when this CPU last invoked rcu_try_advance_all_cbs()
from rcu_needs_cpu() or last invoked rcu_accelerate_cbs() from
-rcu_prepare_for_idle(). The "Nonlazy posted:" indicates lazy-callback
-status, so that an "l" indicates that all callbacks were lazy at the start
-of the last idle period and an "L" indicates that there are currently
-no non-lazy callbacks (in both cases, "." is printed otherwise, as
-shown above) and "D" indicates that dyntick-idle processing is enabled
-("." is printed otherwise, for example, if disabled via the "nohz="
-kernel boot parameter).
+rcu_prepare_for_idle(). "dyntick_enabled: 1" indicates that dyntick-idle
+processing is enabled.
If the grace period ends just as the stall warning starts printing,
there will be a spurious stall-warning message, which will include
