Subject[patch 03/13] ia64/salinfo: Replace racy task affinity logic
Some of the file operations in /proc/sal require 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.
