Not tremendously intelligent, as concurrent readers of /proc/profile
can render each other's results gibberish, however, this should
mitigate some of the cacheline bouncing of prof_buffer.

Some kind of proper IO should be possible given sufficient effort, but
I gave up immediately when my first attempt didn't work, and this
should be enough for getting /proc/profile to stop bouncing madly for
users that can tolerate the concurrent IO constraint. I suppose that
in principle one could hackishly guard collation and copying of
prof_buffer with a semaphore in the per-cpu case. I'll work on fixing
this eventually.

Use perpcu_profile on the kernel command line to activate the feature.
