Subject[PATCH] call stop_machine_text_poke() on all cpus
Currently, text_poke_smp() passes a NULL as the third argument to
__stop_machine(), which will only run stop_machine_text_poke()
on 1 cpu. Change NULL -> cpu_online_mask, as stop_machine_text_poke()
is intended to be run on all cpus.

I actually didn't notice any problems with stop_machine_text_poke()
only being called on 1 cpu, but found this via code inspection.
