Subject[patch 02/23] Add cmpxchg_local to asm-generic for per cpu atomic operations
Emulates the cmpxchg_local by disabling interrupts around variable modification.
This is not reentrant wrt NMIs and MCEs. It is only protected against normal
interrupts, but this is enough for architectures without such interrupt sources
or if used in a context where the data is not shared with such handlers.

It can be used as a fallback for architectures lacking a real cmpxchg
instruction.

For architectures that have a real cmpxchg but does not have NMIs or MCE,
testing which of the generic vs architecture specific cmpxchg is the fastest
should be done.

asm-generic/cmpxchg.h defines a cmpxchg that uses cmpxchg_local. It is meant to
be used as a cmpxchg fallback for architectures that do not support SMP.
