Subject: [PATCH RFC v2 tip/core/rcu 1/2] rcu: Remove cond_resched() from Tiny synchronize_sched()

It is now legal to invoke synchronize_sched() at early boot, which causes
Tiny RCU's synchronize_sched() to emit spurious splats.  This commit
therefore removes the cond_resched() from Tiny RCU's synchronize_sched().
