Just a little question:

Before calling __oprofile_hrtimer_start in other CPUs,
there have been some smp_mb executed already, such as called by
smp_call_function_many in current CPU, and called by
generic_smp_call_function_interrupt in the func-calling CPU,
so are these smp_mb enough for correct order of access
for 'ctr_running' ?
