Actually, smp_processor_id() is used if either preemtion is off or
in a thread that is bound to the current cpu. So all code that uses
smp_processor_id() should be able to use __this_cpu_read instead of
this_cpu_read.

In this case, flow_cache_flush_per_cpu() is called via smp_call_function(),
so it is bound on the current cpu.
