rcu: Remove expedited GP funnel-lock bypass
Commit #cdacbe1f91264 ("rcu: Add fastpath bypassing funnel locking") turns out to be a pessimization at high load because it forces a tree full of tasks to wait for an expedited grace period that they probably do not need. This commit therefore removes this optimization. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
