Subject: [PATCH] s390/smp: Move rcu_cpu_starting() earlier

The call to rcu_cpu_starting() in smp_init_secondary() is not early
enough in the CPU-hotplug onlining process, which results in lockdep
splats as follows:

 WARNING: suspicious RCU usage
 -----------------------------
 kernel/locking/lockdep.c:3497 RCU-list traversed in non-reader section!!

 other info that might help us debug this:

 RCU used illegally from offline CPU!
 rcu_scheduler_active = 1, debug_locks = 1
 no locks held by swapper/1/0.

 Call Trace:
 show_stack+0x158/0x1f0
 dump_stack+0x1f2/0x238
 __lock_acquire+0x2640/0x4dd0
 lock_acquire+0x3a8/0xd08
 _raw_spin_lock_irqsave+0xc0/0xf0
 clockevents_register_device+0xa8/0x528
 init_cpu_timer+0x33e/0x468
 smp_init_secondary+0x11a/0x328
 smp_start_secondary+0x82/0x88

This is avoided by moving the call to rcu_cpu_starting up near the
beginning of the smp_init_secondary() function. Note that the
raw_smp_processor_id() is required in order to avoid calling into
lockdep before RCU has declared the CPU to be watched for readers.
