rcu: provide RCU options on non-preempt architectures too
Impact: build fix Some old architectures still do not use kernel/Kconfig.preempt, so the moving of the RCU options there broke their build: In file included from /home/mingo/tip/include/linux/sem.h:81, from /home/mingo/tip/include/linux/sched.h:69, from /home/mingo/tip/arch/alpha/kernel/asm-offsets.c:9: /home/mingo/tip/include/linux/rcupdate.h:62:2: error: #error "Unknown RCU implementation specified to kernel configuration" Move these options back to init/Kconfig, which every architecture includes.

+ This option reduces the latency of the kernel by making certain
+ RCU sections preemptible. Normally RCU code is non-preemptible, if

+ This option controls the fanout of hierarchical implementations
+ of RCU, allowing RCU to work efficiently on machines with
+ large numbers of CPUs. This value must be at least the cube
+ root of NR_CPUS, which allows NR_CPUS up to 32,768 for 32-bit

+ help
+ This option forces use of the exact RCU_FANOUT value specified,

+ Without RCU_FANOUT_EXACT, the code will balance the hierarchy.
