[PATCH] remove __put_task_struct_cb export again

The patch '[PATCH] RCU signal handling' [1] added an export for
__put_task_struct_cb, a put_task_struct helper newly introduced in that
patch.  But the put_task_struct couldn't be used modular previously as
__put_task_struct wasn't exported.  There are not callers of it in modular
code, and it shouldn't be exported because we don't want drivers to hold
references to task_structs.

This patch removes the export and folds __put_task_struct into
__put_task_struct_cb as there's no other caller.
