Subject: [PATCH RESEND 2/3] percpu_ida: Move waking up waiters out of atomic contexts

Currently percpu_ida_free() waikes up waiters always with local
interrupts disabled and sometimes with pool->lock held. Yet, it
does not appear there is any reason why it could not be done out
of these atomic contexts.
