Preeti U Murthy - July 26, 2013, 5:16 a.m.
From: Srivatsa S. Bhat <srivatsa.bhat@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

For scalability and performance reasons, we want the broadcast timer
interrupts to be handled as efficiently as possible. Fixed IPI messages
are one of the most efficient mechanisms available - they are faster
than the smp_call_function mechanism because the IPI handlers are fixed
and hence they don't involve costly operations such as adding IPI handlers
to the target CPU's function queue, acquiring locks for synchronization etc.

Luckily we have an unused IPI message slot, so use that to implement
broadcast timer interrupts efficiently.
