stop_machine: add ALL_CPUS option
-allow stop_mahcine_run() to call a function on all cpus. Calling stop_machine_run() with a 'ALL_CPUS' invokes this new behavior. stop_machine_run() proceeds as normal until the calling cpu has invoked 'fn'. Then, we tell all the other cpus to call 'fn'.

* stop_machine_run: freeze the machine on all CPUs and run this function
* @fn: the function to run
* @data: the data ptr for the @fn()
- * @cpu: the cpu to run @fn() on (or any, if @cpu == NR_CPUS.
+ * @cpu: if @cpu == n, run @fn() on cpu n
+ * if @cpu == NR_CPUS, run @fn() on any cpu
+ * if @cpu == ALL_CPUS, run @fn() first on the calling cpu, and then
+ * concurrently on all the other cpus
* Description: This causes a thread to be scheduled on every other cpu,
* each of which disables interrupts, and finally interrupts are disabled
