Previously I was doing some debugging on irq related issue
when check_irq_vectors_for_cpu_disable() printed a warning
on that platform, thus I incidentally look at this code and
did not measure it : )

I've just done a comparison of the function duration of
check_irq_vectors_for_cpu_disable() with/without the patch
(32 online CPUs)
before patch:
[001] d..1 264.017803: check_irq_vectors_for_cpu_disable <-native_cpu_disable
[001] d..1 264.017886: clear_local_APIC <-native_cpu_disable
after patch:
[001] d..1 862.011847: check_irq_vectors_for_cpu_disable <-native_cpu_disable
[001] d..1 862.011850: clear_local_APIC <-native_cpu_disable
About (83 - 17) = 66 microsecond.

thanks,
Yu
