SubjectRe: [PATCH -tip] Switch arm defconfig files from CONFIG_CLASSIC_RCU to CONFIG_TREE_RCU.

below is the fix for another small buglet that hits architectures that do
not include kernel/Kconfig.preempt.

Subject: [PATCH] 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.
