rcu/tree: Remove dynticks_nmi_nesting counter
The dynticks_nmi_nesting counter serves 3 purposes:
(a) rcu_is_cpu_rrupt_from_idle() needs to be able to detect first
interrupt nesting level.
(b) We need to detect half-interrupts till we are sure they're not an
issue. However, change the comparison to DYNTICK_IRQ_NONIDLE with 0.
(c) When a quiescent state report is needed from a nohz_full CPU.
The nesting counter detects we are a first level interrupt.
For (a), we can just use dyntick_nesting == 1 to determine this. Only the
outermost interrupt that interrupted an RCU-idle state can set it to 1.
For (b), this warning condition has not occurred for several kernel
releases. But we still keep the warning but change it to use
in_irq() instead of the nesting counter. In a later year, we can remove
For (c), the nest check is not really necessary since forced_tick would
have been set to true in the outermost interrupt, so the nested/NMI
interrupts will check forced_tick anyway, and bail.
