Subject: [PATCH] rcu: remove surplus instrumentation_end in rcu_nmi_enter

In function rcu_nmi_enter, there is a surplus instrumentation_end
in second branch of if statement, although objtool check -f vmlinux.o will
not complain because of its inability to correctly cover all cases
(objtool will visit the third branch first, which markes
 following trace_rcu_dyntick as visited), I think remove the surplus
instrumentation_end will make the code better.
