Due to the fact that p4 counters are shared between HT threads
we synthetically divide the whole set of counters into two
non-intersected subsets. And while we're borrowing counters
from these subsets we should not be preempted. So use
get_cpu/put_cpu pair.

Also p4_pmu_schedule_events should use smp_processor_id rather
than raw_ version. This allow us to catch up preemption issue
(if there will ever be).

N.B. I'm still invetigating the need of preemt to be
disabled of p4_pmu_schedule_events, though Steven has
tested this version and preemtion issue didn't reveal itself
anyhow I think it's valueable to close the former issue
in p4_hw_config first.
