Subject: [PATCH 4/4] scsi: bnx2fc: Avoid using get_cpu() in

Using get_cpu() leads to disabling preemption and in this context it is
not possible to acquire the following spinlock_t on PREEMPT_RT because
it becomes a sleeping lock.

   0ea5c27583e1c ("[SCSI] bnx2fc: common free list for cleanup commands")

says that it is using get_cpu() as a fix in case the CPU is preempted.
While this might be true, the important part is that it is now using the
same CPU for locking and unlocking while previously it always relied on
The date structure itself is protected with a lock so it does not rely
on CPU-local access.

Replace get_cpu() with raw_smp_processor_id() to obtain the current CPU
number which is used as an index for the per-CPU resource.
