tick/nohz: Evaluate the CPU expression after the static key

When tick_nohz_full_cpu() is called with smp_processor_id(), the latter
is unconditionally evaluated whether the static key is on or off. It is
not necessary in the off-case though, so make sure the cpu expression
is executed at the last moment.

Illustrate with the following test function:

	int tick_nohz_test(void)
	{
		return tick_nohz_full_cpu(smp_processor_id());
	}

The resulting code before was:

	mov    %gs:0x7eea92d1(%rip),%eax   # smp_processor_id() fetch
	nopl   0x0(%rax,%rax,1)
	xor    %eax,%eax
	retq
	cmpb   $0x0,0x29d393a(%rip)        # <tick_nohz_full_running>
	je     tick_nohz_test+0x29         # jump to below eax clear
	mov    %eax,%eax
	bt     %rax,0x29d3936(%rip)        # <tick_nohz_full_mask>
	setb   %al
	movzbl %al,%eax
	retq
	xor    %eax,%eax
	retq

Now it becomes:

	nopl   0x0(%rax,%rax,1)
	xor    %eax,%eax
	retq
	cmpb   $0x0,0x29d3871(%rip)        # <tick_nohz_full_running>
	je     tick_nohz_test+0x29         # jump to below eax clear
	mov    %gs:0x7eea91f0(%rip),%eax   # smp_processor_id() fetch, after static key
	mov    %eax,%eax
	bt     %rax,0x29d3866(%rip)        # <tick_nohz_full_mask>
	setb   %al
	movzbl %al,%eax
	retq
	xor    %eax,%eax
	retq
