Ingo, we can have a smaller patch (appended) for the -stable. How do you
want to go ahead? Take this small patch for both mainline and -stable
and the two code cleanup/consolidation patches for -tip (to go into
3.1?). Thanks.

Subject: x86, mtrr: lock stop machine during MTRR rendezvous sequence
MTRR rendezvous sequence using stop_one_cpu_nowait() can potentially
happen in parallel with another system wide rendezvous using
stop_machine(). This can lead to deadlock (The order in which
works are queued can be different on different cpu's. Some cpu's
will be running the first rendezvous handler and others will be running
the second rendezvous handler. Each set waiting for the other set to join
for the system wide rendezvous, leading to a deadlock).

MTRR rendezvous sequence is not implemented using stop_machine() as this
gets called both from the process context aswell as the cpu online paths
(where the cpu has not come online and the interrupts are disabled etc).
stop_machine() works with only online cpus.

For now, take the stop_cpus mutex in the MTRR rendezvous sequence that
prevents the above mentioned deadlock. If this gets called in the cpu
online path, then we loop using try_lock. Otherwise we wait till the
mutex is available.

TBD: Extend the stop_machine() infrastructure to handle the case where
the calling cpu is still not online and use this for MTRR rendezvous
sequence (rather than implementing own stop machine using
stop_one_cpu_nowait()). This will consolidate the code.
