Subject: [PATCH 4.4 085/230] xtensa: SMP: fix ccount_timer_shutdown

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

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

[ Upstream commit 4fe8713b873fc881284722ce4ac47995de7cf62c ]

ccount_timer_shutdown is called from the atomic context in the
secondary_start_kernel, resulting in the following BUG:

BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context
in_atomic(): 1, irqs_disabled(): 1, pid: 0, name: swapper/1
Preemption disabled at:
  secondary_start_kernel+0xa1/0x130
Call Trace:
  ___might_sleep+0xe7/0xfc
  __might_sleep+0x41/0x44
  synchronize_irq+0x24/0x64
  disable_irq+0x11/0x14

  secondary_start_kernel+0xb4/0x130
  should_never_return+0x32/0x35

Use disable_irq_nosync instead of disable_irq to avoid it.
This is safe because the ccount timer IRQ is per-CPU, and once IRQ is
masked the ISR will not be called.
