[PATCH 3.18 075/124] percpu: acquire pcpu_lock when updating pcpu_nr_empty_pop_pages




3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Tahsin Erdogan <tahsin@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 320661b08dd6f1746d5c7ab4eb435ec64b97cd45 upstream.

Update to pcpu_nr_empty_pop_pages in pcpu_alloc() is currently done
without holding pcpu_lock. This can lead to bad updates to the variable.
Add missing lock calls.

Fixes: b539b87fed37 ("percpu: implmeent pcpu_nr_empty_pop_pages and chunk->nr_populated")
