net: disable preemption before call smp_processor_id()

Although netif_rx() isn't expected to be called in process context with
preemption enabled, it'd better handle this case. And this is why get_cpu()
is used in the non-RPS #ifdef branch. If tree RCU is selected,
rcu_read_lock() won't disable preemption, so preempt_disable() should be
called explictly.
