I think IPI_AST in the first hunk should be using ipi_cpu().  I would perhaps 
tackle ipi_cpu() as a first step: introduce ipi_cpu() on both i386 and amd64 
(it should be ok to add a real version for i386 rather than the current macro, 
it should be a copy of the amd64 code).  Other folks can help with other 
architectures.  ipi_selected() should generally be a good clue as to how to 
implement ipi_cpu().
