Subject[rfc 40/45] x86_64: Provide per_cpu_var definition
There needs to be a way to determine the offset for the CPU ops of per cpu
variables. The offset is simply the address of the variable. But we do not
want to code ugly things like

CPU_READ(per_cpu__statistics)

in the core. So define a new helper per_cpu_var(var) that simply adds
the per_cpu__ prefix.
