lockdep: Move early boot local IRQ enable/disable status to init/main.c
During early boot, local IRQ is disabled until IRQ subsystem is properly initialized. During this time, no one should enable local IRQ and some operations which usually are not allowed with IRQ disabled, e.g. operations which might sleep or require communications with other processors, are allowed. lockdep tracked this with early_boot_irqs_off/on() callbacks. As other subsystems need this information too, move it to init/main.c and make it generally available. While at it, toggle the boolean to early_boot_irqs_disabled instead of enabled so that it can be initialized with %false and %true indicates the exceptional condition.
