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. -- Ben Hutchings Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans. - John Lennon
