ftape fails on SMP due to sti/save_flags/restore_flags removal.

My .config:

# CONFIG_FT_STD_FDC is not set
# CONFIG_FT_MACH2 is not set
# CONFIG_FT_PROBE_FC10 is not set

# Consult the manuals of your tape drive for the correct settings!

And the warnings:

drivers/char/ftape/lowlevel/fdc-io.c: In function `fdc_command':
drivers/char/ftape/lowlevel/fdc-io.c:221: warning: implicit declaration of function `restore_flags'

I have the HW so I can test patches if someone feels like fixing this.
