[PATCH] Change maxaligned_in_smp alignemnt macros to internodealigned_in_smp macros



____cacheline_maxaligned_in_smp is currently used to align critical structures
and avoid false sharing.  It uses per-arch L1_CACHE_SHIFT_MAX and people find
L1_CACHE_SHIFT_MAX useless.

However, we have been using ____cacheline_maxaligned_in_smp to align
structures on the internode cacheline size.  As per Andi's suggestion,
following patch kills ____cacheline_maxaligned_in_smp and introduces
INTERNODE_CACHE_SHIFT, which defaults to L1_CACHE_SHIFT for all arches.
Arches needing L3/Internode cacheline alignment can define
INTERNODE_CACHE_SHIFT in the arch asm/cache.h.  Patch replaces
____cacheline_maxaligned_in_smp with ____cacheline_internodealigned_in_smp

With this patch, L1_CACHE_SHIFT_MAX can be killed
