Introduce the notion of TIF_NOTIFY_IPI flag. When a processor in
TIF_POLLING mode needs to process an IPI, the sender sets NEED_RESCHED
bit in idle task's thread_info to pull the target out of idle and avoids
sending an interrupt to the idle CPU. When NEED_RESCHED is set, the
scheduler assumes that a new task has been queued on the idle CPU and
calls schedule_idle(), however, it is not necessary that an IPI on an
idle CPU will necessarily end up waking a task on the said CPU. To avoid
spurious calls to schedule_idle() assuming an IPI on an idle CPU will
always wake a task on the said CPU, TIF_NOTIFY_IPI will be used to pull
a TIF_POLLING CPU out of idle.

Since the IPI handlers are processed before the call to schedule_idle(),
schedule_idle() will be called only if one of the handlers have woken up
a new task on the CPU and has set NEED_RESCHED.

Add tif_notify_ipi() and current_clr_notify_ipi() helpers to test if
TIF_NOTIFY_IPI is set in the current task's thread_info, and to clear it
respectively. These interfaces will be used in subsequent patches as
TIF_NOTIFY_IPI notion is integrated in the scheduler and in the idle
