Subject: [PATCH 1/2] percpu: allow pcpu_alloc() to be called with IRQs off

pcpu_alloc() and pcpu_extend_area_map() perform a series of
spin_lock_irq()/spin_unlock_irq() calls, which make them unsafe
with respect to being called from contexts which have IRQs off.

This patch converts the code to perform save/restore of flags instead,
making pcpu_alloc() (or __alloc_percpu() respectively) to be called
from early kernel startup stage, where IRQs are off.

This is needed for proper initialization of per-cpu rq_weight data from
sched_init().
