Add generic virtualization support for pinning the current vcpu to a
specified physical cpu. As this operation isn't performance critical
(a very limited set of operations like BIOS calls and SMIs is expected
to need this) just add a hypervisor specific indirection.

V4: move this patch some places up in the series
    WARN_ONCE in case platform doesn't support pinning as requested by
    Peter Zijlstra

V3: use getc_cpu()/put_cpu() as suggested by David Vrabel

V2: adapt to using workqueues
    add include/linux/hypervisor.h to hide architecture specific stuff
    from generic kernel code

In case paravirt maintainers don't want to be responsible for
include/linux/hypervisor.h I could take it.

On some hardware models (e.g. Dell Studio 1555 laptop) some hardware
related functions (e.g. SMIs) are to be executed on physical cpu 0
only. Instead of open coding such a functionality multiple times in
the kernel add a service function for this purpose. This will enable
the possibility to take special measures in virtualized environments
like Xen, too.

Some hardware models (e.g. Dell Studio 1555 laptops) require calls to
the firmware to be issued on cpu 0 only. As Dom0 might have to use
these calls, add xen_pin_vcpu() to achieve this functionality.

In case either the domain doesn't have the privilege to make the
related hypercall or the hypervisor isn't supporting it, issue a
warning once and disable further pinning attempts.

Use smp_call_on_cpu() to raise SMI on cpu 0.
Make call secure by adding get_online_cpus() to avoid e.g. suspend
resume cycles in between.

Use the smp_call_on_cpu() function to call system management
mode on cpu 0.
Make call secure by adding get_online_cpus() to avoid e.g. suspend
resume cycles in between.

Could please some maintainer comment on this patch?

Peter, Ingo,

is one of you considering to take this series for 4.8? I know not all
patches got an Ack, OTOH maintainers had 2.5 months time to object.

I'd really appreciate this series would make it into 4.8.

David, as I've got no reactions when asking for the last outstanding
Acks (patches 2 and 5) and neither Ingo nor Peter seem to be willing
to take the patches, I'd like to suggest we carry the series via the
xen tree. Are you okay with this suggestion?
