Having such a thing as a config option doesn't really make
any sense to me. Who would want to recompile their kernel
to enable/disable this? If anything it should be runtime, or better
just unconditionally on.

In general RCU could probably reduce its number of "weird"
Kconfig options.

While I think I have a better understanding of RCU than a lot
of normal users I often have no clue what to set there when
building a kernel.
