[PATCH 4.4 55/56] x86/oprofile/ppro: Do not use __this_cpu*() in preemptible context




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

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

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@xxxxxxx>

commit a743bbeef27b9176987ec0cb7f906ab0ab52d1da upstream.

The warning below says it all:

  BUG: using __this_cpu_read() in preemptible [00000000] code: swapper/0/1
  caller is __this_cpu_preempt_check
  CPU: 0 PID: 1 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 4.14.0-rc8 #4
  Call Trace:
   dump_stack
   check_preemption_disabled
   ? do_early_param
   __this_cpu_preempt_check
   arch_perfmon_init
   op_nmi_init
   ? alloc_pci_root_info
   oprofile_arch_init
   oprofile_init
   do_one_initcall
   ...

These accessors should not have been used in the first place: it is PPro so
no mixed silicon revisions and thus it can simply use boot_cpu_data.
