Subject[PATCH v2 2/2] x86: Added read_mostly declaration/definition to vars from smp.h
Date
Added a "read-mostly" qualifier to the following variables in smp.h:
- cpu_sibling_map
- cpu_core_map
- cpu_llc_shared_map
- cpu_llc_id
- cpu_number
- x86_cpu_to_apicid
- x86_bios_cpu_apicid
- x86_cpu_to_logical_apicid

As long as all the variables above are only written during the initialization,
this change is meant to prevent the false sharing and improve the
performance on large multiprocessor systems.
