Remove all rcu head inits. We don't care about the RCU head state before
passing it to call_rcu() anyway. Only leave the "on_stack" variants so
debugobjects can keep track of objects on stack.

I've tried to check if the initialisation was always done in call_rcu in all
implementations since 2.6.21. This assumption seems to be correct. I've
already applied it to the maint branch and it must only be applied to the
trunk.

v2: I've accidently send the version of maint instead the version for trunk.
There were no real differences, but the paths.
