[PATCH v2] Make hard_irq_disable() actually hard-disable interrupts

At present, hard_irq_disable() does nothing on powerpc because of
this code in include/linux/interrupt.h:

#ifndef hard_irq_disable
#define hard_irq_disable()      do { } while(0)

So we need to make our hard_irq_disable be a macro.
