Subject[patch 04/13] ia64/sn/hwperf: Replace racy task affinity logic
sn_hwperf_op_cpu() which is invoked from an ioctl requires to run code on
the requested cpu. This is achieved by temporarily setting the affinity of
the calling user space thread to the requested CPU and reset it to the
original affinity afterwards.

That's racy vs. CPU hotplug and concurrent affinity settings for that
thread resulting in code executing on the wrong CPU and overwriting the
new affinity setting.

Replace it by using work_on_cpu_safe() which guarantees to run the code on
the requested CPU or to fail in case the CPU is offline.
