rcu: Remove redundant TREE_PREEMPT_RCU config option
PREEMPT_RCU and TREE_PREEMPT_RCU serve the same function after TINY_PREEMPT_RCU has been removed. This patch removes TREE_PREEMPT_RCU and uses PREEMPT_RCU config option in its place. Signed-off-by: Pranith Kumar <bobby.prani@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com>
