rcu: provide RCU options on non-preempt architectures too

Impact: build fix

Some old architectures still do not use kernel/Kconfig.preempt, so the
moving of the RCU options there broke their build:

 In file included from /home/mingo/tip/include/linux/sem.h:81,
                 from /home/mingo/tip/include/linux/sched.h:69,
                 from /home/mingo/tip/arch/alpha/kernel/asm-offsets.c:9:
 /home/mingo/tip/include/linux/rcupdate.h:62:2: error: #error "Unknown RCU implementation specified to kernel configuration"

Move these options back to init/Kconfig, which every architecture
includes.
