udp: do rmem bulk free even if the rx sk queue is empty

The commit 6b229cf7

 ("udp: add batching to udp_rmem_release()")
reduced greatly the cacheline contention between the BH and the US
reader batching the rmem updates in most scenarios.

Such optimization is explicitly avoided if the US reader is faster
then BH processing.

My fault, I initially suggested this kind of behavior due to concerns
of possible regressions with small sk_rcvbuf values. Tests showed
such concerns are misplaced, so this commit relaxes the condition
for rmem bulk updates, obtaining small but measurable performance
gain in the scenario described above.
