I will add a comment, although smp_processor_id() should anyhow shout at you
if you use it with CONFIG_DEBUG_PREEMPT=y.

The credit for this assertion goes to Peter who suggested I add it...

Thanks for the reviews of this patch and the others (don’t worry, I won’t
add the “Reviewed-by” tag to the others).
