Subject[PATCH 07/13] rcu/nocb: Directly call __wake_nocb_gp() from bypass timer
The bypass timer calls __call_rcu_nocb_wake() instead of directly
calling __wake_nocb_gp(). The only difference here is that
rdp->qlen_last_fqs_check gets overriden. But resetting the deferred
force quiescent state base shouldn't be relevant for that timer. In fact
the bypass queue in concern can be for any rdp from the group and not
necessarily the rdp leader on which the bypass timer is attached.

Therefore we can simply call directly __wake_nocb_gp(). This way we
don't even need to lock the nocb_lock.
