SubjectEXP rcu: Revert expedited GP parallelization cleverness

How about instead changing the earlier "if" statement to read as follows?

if (!READ_ONCE(rcu_par_gp_wq) ||
rcu_scheduler_active != RCU_SCHEDULER_RUNNING ||
rcu_is_last_leaf_node(rnp) ||
IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT_FULL)) {
/* No workqueues yet or last leaf, do direct call. */
sync_rcu_exp_select_node_cpus(&rnp->rew.rew_work);
continue;
}

This just adds the "|| IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT_FULL)" to the "if"
condition.

The advantage of this approach is that it leaves the parallelization
alone for mainline, and avoids the overhead of the workqueues for -rt.

Thanx, Paul
