rcu: Stopgap fix for synchronize_rcu_expedited() for TREE_PREEMPT_RCU

For the short term, map synchronize_rcu_expedited() to
synchronize_rcu() for TREE_PREEMPT_RCU and to
synchronize_sched_expedited() for TREE_RCU.

Longer term, there needs to be a real expedited grace period for
TREE_PREEMPT_RCU, but candidate patches to date are considerably
more complex and intrusive.
