Subject: [PATCH 1/1] rcu: Feedback comments

If we configure a kernel with CONFIG_NOCB_CPU=y, CONFIG_RCU_NOCB_CPU_NONE=y and
CONFIG_CPUMASK_OFFSTACK=n and do not pass in a rcu_nocb= boot parameter, the
cpumask rcu_nocb_mask can be garbage instead of NULL.

Hence this commit replaces checks for rcu_nocb_mask == NULL with a check for
have_rcu_nocb_mask.
