irq_work: Make self-IPIs optable
On irq work initialization, let the user choose to define it as "lazy" or not. "Lazy" means that we don't want to send an IPI (provided the arch can anyway) when we enqueue this work but we rather prefer to wait for the next timer tick to execute our work if possible. This is going to be a benefit for non-urgent enqueuers (like printk in the future) that may prefer not to raise an IPI storm in case of frequent enqueuing on short periods of time.
