Subject: [PATCH 09/13] rcu/nocb: Cancel nocb_timer upon nocb_gp wakeup

As we wake up in nocb_gp_wait(), there is no need to keep the nocb_timer
around as we are going to go through the whole rdp list again. Any update
performed before the timer was armed will now be visible after the
nocb_gp_lock acquire.
