Ok, both of the patches look sane to me, but it would really be nice
to hear from somebody with the actual affected architectures, and get
a tested-by.

UML is affected:

I wasted an hour finding out why it is crashing.
Instead of testing kernels I really should read more LKML. ;-)

Hmm.

Ben - how about that

  static DEFINE_PER_CPU(struct cpu, cpu_devices);

approach that Richard uses in his patch, instead of the kcalloc?

That seems perfectly good.

And
clearly UM should also do that CONFIG_GENERIC_CPU_DEVICES thing with
your patch.

Richard - does Ben's patch work for  you too if you just add "select
GENERIC_CPU_DEVICES" in the UM Kconfig too (Kconfig.common, probably)?

Sorry, I meant to cover UM as well but I couldn't see how its Kconfig
files were organised.

Ben.
