Subject[PATCH 2/3] x86: reduce stack requirements for send_call_func_ipi
  * By converting the internal x86 smp_ops function send_call_func_ipi
to pass a pointer to the cpumask_t variable, we greatly reduce the
stack space required when NR_CPUS=4096.

Further reduction will be realized when the send_IPI_mask interface
is changed in 2.6.28.

Based on 2.6.27-rc5-git6.

Applies to linux-2.6.tip/master (with FUZZ).
