Subject[PATCH][2.5][0/15] smp_call_function_on_cpu w/ removal of unused parameter

The following patches introduce smp_call_function_on_cpu which
provides a facility for sending IPIs to a group or single cpu encapsulated
within a bitmask, this function could be used trigger remote cpus to
modify percpu data in order to maintain local modification mandates for
lockless algorithms, although perhaps not in a real hotpath due to
contention for the call_lock and dependency on IPI performance on a
specific architecture.

At present there are a number of arch specific functions which achieve
the same effect, the name was lifted from Alpha. As per Manfred's request
i have also taken the liberty of removing the nonatomic/retry parameter
from smp_call_function since it's used as 'nonatomic' on a number of
architectures and used as 'retry' on others whilst not actually doing much
on a majority of said architectures.

The patches have been acked by some arch maintainers with no contest
otherwise when i originally posted. If a particular arch maintainer notes
breakage in my implementation please point it out and i'll do the grunt
work.

Thanks,
Zwane
