Subject[PATCH v2 3/4] task: With a grace period after finish_task_switch, remove unnecessary code

Remove work arounds that were written before there was a grace period
after tasks left the runqueue in finish_task_switch.

In particular now that there tasks exiting the runqueue exprience
a rcu grace period none of the work performed by task_rcu_dereference
excpet the rcu_dereference is necessary so replace task_rcu_dereference
with rcu_dereference.

Remove the code in rcuwait_wait_event that checks to ensure the current
task has not exited. It is no longer necessary as it is guaranteed
that any running task will experience a rcu grace period after it
leaves the run queueue.

Remove the comment in rcuwait_wake_up as it is no longer relevant.
