[MIPS] SMTC: Instant IPI replay.



SMTC pseudo-interrupts between TCs are deferred and queued if the target
TC is interrupt-inhibited (IXMT). In the first SMTC prototypes, these
queued IPIs were serviced on return to user mode, or on entry into the
kernel idle loop. The INSTANT_REPLAY option dispatches them as part of
local_irq_restore() processing, which adds runtime overhead (hence the
option to turn it off), but ensures that IPIs are handled promptly even
under heavy I/O interrupt load.
