[PATCH] XPC heartbeat timer function must run on CPU 0

From: Dean Nelson <dcn_at_sgi.com>
Date: 2007-11-08 00:53:06
Currently, XPC's heartbeat timer function runs on whatever CPU modprobe/insmod
ran on when XPC was started. To avoid the heartbeat from being delayed for
long periods the timer function must run on CPU 0.
