doc: Remove obsolete RCU-bh and RCU-sched update-side API members

synchronize_rcu_bh(), synchronize_rcu_bh_expedited(), call_rcu_bh(),
rcu_barrier_bh(), synchronize_sched(), synchronize_rcu_sched_expedited(),
call_rcu_sched(), and rcu_barrier_sched() no longer exist, so this
commit removes mention of them.
