This is version 2 of the percpu patch set.

Changes from version 1:

- Created a PERCPU_OFFSET variable to use in
  (suggested by Sam Ravnborg)

- Added support for x86_64 (Steven Rostedt)

The support for x86_64 goes back to the asm-generic handling when both
CONFIG_SMP and CONFIG_MODULES are set. This is due to the fact that the
__per_cpu_offset array is no longer referenced in per_cpu, but instead a
per per_cpu variable is used to find the offset.

Again, the rest of the patches are only sent to the LKML.

Still I need help to port this to the rest of the architectures.
