smp: Allow on_each_cpu() to be called while early_boot_irqs_disabled status to init/main.c
percpu may end up calling vfree() during early boot which in turn may call on_each_cpu() for TLB flushes. The function of on_each_cpu() can be done safely while IRQ is disabled during early boot but it assumed that the function is always called with local IRQ enabled which ended up enabling local IRQ prematurely during boot and triggering a couple of warnings. This patch updates on_each_cpu() and smp_call_function_many() such on_each_cpu() can be used safely while early_boot_irqs_disabled is set.
