Subject: [patch V3 12/13] cpufreq/sparc-us2e: Replace racy task affinity
 logic

The access to the HBIRD_ESTAR_MODE register in the cpu frequency control
functions must happen on the target CPU. This is achieved by temporarily
setting the affinity of the calling user space thread to the requested CPU
and reset it to the original affinity afterwards.

That's racy vs. CPU hotplug and concurrent affinity settings for that
thread resulting in code executing on the wrong CPU and overwriting the
new affinity setting.

Replace it by a straight forward smp function call.
