rcu: Force quiescent states only for ongoing grace period

If an rcutorture test scenario creates an fqs_task kthread, it will
periodically invoke rcu_force_quiescent_state() in order to start
force-quiescent-state (FQS) operations.  However, an FQS operation
will be started even if there is no RCU grace period in progress.
Although testing FQS operations startup when there is no grace period in
progress is necessary, it need not happen all that often.  This commit
therefore causes rcu_force_quiescent_state() to take an early exit
if there is no grace period in progress.

Note that there will still be attempts to start an FQS scan in the
absence of a grace period because the grace period might end right
after the rcu_force_quiescent_state() function's check.  In actual
testing, this happens about once every ten minutes, which should
provide adequate testing.
