This breaks on sparc64.

Because that ain't implemented.

There's a call in net/iucv/iucv.c, but that's s390-only.

There's a call in virt/kvm/kvm_main.c.

There's a call in kernel/time/tick-broadcast.c, so I assume that the
intersection between CONFIG_GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS_BROADCAST and
non-smp_call_function_single() architectures is presently empty.


I guess all SMP-capable architectures should now implement this,
please. It is presently defined on all architectures for CONFIG_SMP=n
and it is declared in include/linux/smp.h.
