The following patches introduce smp_call_function_on_cpu which
provides a facility for sending IPIs to a group or single cpu encapsulated
within a bitmask. At present there are a number of arch specific functions
which achieve the same effect, the name was lifted from Alpha.
As per Manfred's request i have also taken the liberty of removing the
nonatomic/retry parameter from smp_call_function since it's used
as 'nonatomic' on a number of architectures and used as 'retry' on others
whilst not actually doing much on a majority of said architectures.
I have not being able to compile or test the other architectures apart
from i386 (surprise, surprise), but there should only be minimal, if any,
Please consider for inclusion, if a particular arch maintainer notes
breakage in my implementation please point it out and i'll do the grunt
