2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

From: Peter Zijlstra <a.p.zijlstra@chello.nl>

commit fa33507a22623b3bd543b15a21c362cf364b6cff upstream.

Dmitry Adamushko reported:

> [*] btw., with DEBUG being enabled, pr_debug() generates [1] when
> debug_smp_processor_id() is used (CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPT).
>
