smp_call_function() is kind of messy since it uses IPI to call
on each CPU. Not sure that's a good solution since it won't complete
until all the CPUs have executed the given function.
If kernel threads or tasklets don't cut it, I could understand why
using a timers machvec would be "lighter weight".
