smp: Implement kick_all_cpus_sync()
Will replace the misnomed cpu_idle_wait() function which is copied a gazillion times all over arch/* Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Acked-by: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org> Link: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/20120507175652.049316594@linutronix.de
