Initial patch submitted by achiang and myself

Description of problem:

dzickus has noted that several patches now depend on smp_call_function_single() and smp_call_function_many().

In order to simplify the patches, I am going to create a single patch for these functions.  The patches will the refer back to this patch.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.6.18-166.el5


Additional info: Patch is based on the one that I am working with for the MCE code, and that was submitted by achiang as part of his powernow driver update.
