Can you please implement a patch for safe_smp_processor_id() instead of
using smp_processor_id(). safe_smp_processor_id() was introduced to make
sure that we are not dependent on the stack of threads after kernel has
crashed instead read the apic id and convert it to cpu id with other
data structures. This helped in stack overflow case.

Hardcoding it to smp_processor_id() will give the false impression.
