Nice! I will add it on top, if you don’t mind (instead squashing it).

The original decision to have local/remote functions was mostly to provide
the generality.

I would change the last argument of __smp_call_function_many() from “wait”
to “flags” that would indicate whether to run the function locally, since I
don’t want to change the semantics of smp_call_function_many() and decide
whether to run the function locally purely based on the mask. Let me know if
you disagree.
