riscv: fix the IPI missing issue in nommu mode

This patch fixes the IPI(inner processor interrupt) missing issue. It
failed because it used hartid_mask to iterate for_each_cpu(), however the
cpu_mask and hartid_mask may not be always the same. It will never send the
IPI to hartid 4 because it will be skipped in for_each_cpu loop in my case.

We can reproduce this case in Qemu sifive_u machine by this command.
qemu-system-riscv64 -nographic -smp 5 -m 1G -M sifive_u -kernel \

It will hang in csd_lock_wait(csd) because the csd_unlock(csd) is not
called. It is not called because hartid 4 doesn't receive the IPI to
release this lock. The caller hart doesn't send the IPI to hartid 4 is
because of hartid 4 is skipped in for_each_cpu(). It will be skipped is
because "(cpu) < nr_cpu_ids" is not true. The hartid is 4 and nr_cpu_ids
is 4. Therefore it should use cpumask in for_each_cpu() instead of

        /* Send a message to all CPUs in the map */

        if (wait) {
                for_each_cpu(cpu, cfd->cpumask) {
                        call_single_data_t *csd;
			csd = per_cpu_ptr(cfd->csd, cpu);

        for ((cpu) = -1;                                \
                (cpu) = cpumask_next((cpu), (mask)),    \
                (cpu) < nr_cpu_ids;)

It could boot to login console after this patch applied.
