s390/smp: avoid concurrent write to sigp status field
When a sigp instruction is issued it may store a status. This status is currently stored in a per cpu field of the target cpu. If multiple cpus issue a sigp instruction with the same target cpu and a status is stored the result is not necessarily as expected. Currently this is not an issue: - on cpu hotplug no sigps, except "restart" and "sense" are sent to the target cpu. - on external call we don't look at the status if it is stored - on sense running the condition code "status stored" is sufficient to tell if a cpu is running or not Signed-off-by: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Martin Schwidefsky <schwidefsky@de.ibm.com>
