irq_work: Split raised and lazy lists
An irq work can be handled from two places: from the tick if the work carries the "lazy" flag and the tick is periodic, or from a self IPI. We merge all these works in a single list and we use some per cpu latch to avoid raising a self-IPI when one is already pending. Now we could do away with this ugly latch if only the list was only made of non-lazy works. Just enqueueing a work on the empty list would be enough to know if we need to raise an IPI or not. Also we are going to implement remote irq work queuing. Then the per CPU latch will need to become atomic in the global scope. That's too bad because, here as well, just enqueueing a work on an empty list of non-lazy works would be enough to know if we need to raise an IPI or not. So lets take a way out of this: split the works in two distinct lists, one for the works that can be handled by the next tick and another one for those handled by the IPI. Just checking if the latter is empty when we queue a new work is enough to know if we need to raise an IPI.
