Subject[RFC PATCH 1/1] ppc/smp: Replace unnecessary 'while' by 'if'
Date
spin_until_cond() will wait until nmi_ipi_busy == false, and
nmi_ipi_lock_start() does not seem to change nmi_ipi_busy, so there is
no way this while will ever repeat.

Replace this 'while' by an 'if', so it does not look like it can repeat.
