rcutorture: Abstract stutter_wait()
Because stuttering the test load (stopping and restarting it) is useful for non-RCU testing, this commit moves the load-stuttering functionality to kernel/torture.c. Signed-off-by: Paul E. McKenney <paulmck@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Reviewed-by: Josh Triplett <josh@joshtriplett.org>
