percpu: don't assume existence of cpu0

percpu incorrectly assumed that cpu0 was always there which led to the
following warning and eventual oops on sparc machines w/o cpu0.

   Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill the idle task!

This patch fixes the problem by backporting parts from devel branch to
make percpu core not depend on the existence of cpu0.
