Subject: [PATCH] net-rps: Fix brokeness causing OOO packets

commit baefa31db2f2b13a05d1b81bdf2d20d487f58b0a upstream.

In commit c445477d74ab3779 which adds aRFS to the kernel, the CPU
selected for RFS is not set correctly when CPU is changing.
This is causing OOO packets and probably other issues.
