This can be either debug_smp_processor_id() or raw_smp_processor_id().
raw_smp_processor_id() is fine from FIQ contexts, as seems to be
debug_smp_processor_id(), but only because we guarantee that
irqs_disabled() in there will be true.

get_cpu_var() needs put_cpu_var() to undo its effects. get_cpu_var()
calls preempt_disable(), which calls into lockdep... I think we
determined that was fine last time we went digging? put_cpu_var()
would call preempt_enable() which I'd hope would be safe in FIQ/NMI
contexts?

Again, get_cpu_xxx() needs to be balanced with a put_cpu_xxx().
