   [IA64] add cpu_relax() in the body of spin loops
   
   This patch adds cpu_relax() in the body of spin loops in
   smp_call_function(), smp_call_function_single(), and
   ia64_mca_wakeup_ipi_wait().

   [IA64] speedup ptrace by avoiding kernel-stack walk
   
   This patch changes the syscall entry path to store the
   current-frame-mask (CFM) in pt_regs->cr_ifs.  This just takes one
   extra instruction (a "dep" to clear the bits other than 0-37) and is
   free in terms of cycles.
   
   The advantage of doing this is that it lets ptrace() avoid having to
   walk the stack to determine the end of the user-level backing-store of
   a process which is in the middle of a system-call.  Since this is what
   strace does all the time, this speeds up strace quite a bit (by ~50%).
   More importantly, it makes the syscall vs. non-syscall case much more
   symmetric, which is always something I wanted.
   
   Note that the change to ivt.S looks big but this is just a rippling
   effect of instruction-scheduling to keep syscall latency the same.
   All that's really going on there is that instead of storing 0 into
   cr_ifs member we store the low 38 bits of ar.pfs.
