[PATCH] i386/x86_64: ACPI cpu_idle_wait() fix

The scheduler on Andreas Friedrich's hyperthreading system stopped
working properly: the scheduler would never move tasks to another CPU!
The lask known working kernel was 2.6.8.

After a couple of attempts to corner the bug, the following smoking gun
was found:

  BIOS reported wrong ACPI idfor the processor
  CPU#1: set_cpus_allowed(), swapper:1, 3 -> 2
   [<c0103bbe>] show_trace_log_lvl+0x34/0x4a

   [<c0101d86>] cpu_idle_wait+0x2e/0x100
   [<c0259c57>] acpi_processor_power_exit+0x45/0x58
   [<c0259752>] acpi_processor_remove+0x46/0xea
   [<c025c6fb>] acpi_start_single_object+0x47/0x54
   [<c025cee5>] acpi_bus_register_driver+0xa4/0xd3
   [<c04ab2d7>] acpi_processor_init+0x57/0x77
   [<c01004d7>] init+0x146/0x2fd
   [<c0103a87>] kernel_thread_helper+0x7/0x10

a quick look at cpu_idle_wait() shows how broken that code is
on i386: it changes the init task's affinity map but never
restores it ...

and because all userspace tasks get forked by init, they all
inherited that single-CPU affinity mask. x86_64 cloned this
bug too.
