Subject: [PATCH 1/2] rcutorture: Add usage warnings for parameters gp_normal and gp_exp

From: Lihao Liang <lianglihao@...wei.com>

In rcu_torture_fakewriter(), when param gp_normal is equal to
gp_exp (even when they are false), both cur_ops->sync() and
cur_ops->exp_sync() may be invoked. This commit checks that
if any of them is NULL, it will print out a warning message.
It also emits a warning if gp_normal is true but cur_ops->sync()
is NULL.

Signed-off-by: Lihao Liang <lianglihao@...wei.com>

I think the last else-if block is redundant and I choose to include it
for completeness. In addition, it may be better to have more informative
warning messages for the new if-else blocks. Feel free to revise them.
