rcutorture: Avoid corner-case #DE with nsynctypes check
The rcutorture module is used to run torture tests that validate RCU. rcutorture takes a variety of module parameters that configure the functionality of the test. Amongst these parameters are the types of synchronization mechanisms that the rcu_torture_writer and rcu_torture_fakewriter tasks may use, and the torture_type of the run which determines what read and sync operations are used by the various writer and reader tasks that run throughout the test. When the module is configured to only use sync types for which the specified torture_type does not implement the necessary operations, we can end up in a state where nsynctypes is 0. This is not an erroneous state, but it currently crashes the kernel with a #DE due to nsynctypes being used with a modulo operator in rcu_torture_fakewriter(). Here is an example of such a #DE: $ insmod ./rcutorture.ko gp_cond=1 gp_cond_exp=0 gp_exp=0 gp_poll_exp=0 gp_normal=0 gp_poll=0 gp_poll_exp=0 verbose=9999 torture_type=trivial ...

This is already being done in rcu_torture_writer(), though there is a missing return on that path which will be fixed in a subsequent patch.
