smp_call_function() automatically skips the calling CPU but this code does
not. It isn't a hard bug since kgdb_nmicallback() does a re-entrancy
check but I'd still prefer to skip the calling CPU.

As mentioned in another part of the thread we can also add robustness
by skipping a cpu where csd->flags != 0 (and adding an appropriately
large comment regarding why). Doing the check directly is abusing
internal knowledge that smp.c normally keeps to itself so an accessor
of some kind would be needed.

I can't help noticing this code is very similar to kgdb_roundup_cpus. Do
we really gain much from ahead-of-time initializing csd->func?
