Increase default RCU batching sharply
Dipankar made RCU limit the batch size to improve latency, but that approach is unworkable: it can cause the RCU queues to grow without bounds, since the batch limiter ended up limiting the callbacks. So make the limit much higher, and start planning on instead limiting the batch size by doing RCU callbacks more often if the queue looks like it might be growing too long.
