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)?
Yeah, Ben's patch solves the problem too. :-) Ben, please add the attached patch snippet to your patch. -- diff --git a/arch/um/Kconfig.common b/arch/um/Kconfig.common index a923483..b37ae70 100644 --- a/arch/um/Kconfig.common +++ b/arch/um/Kconfig.common @@ -8,6 +8,7 @@ config UML default y select HAVE_GENERIC_HARDIRQS select GENERIC_IRQ_SHOW + select GENERIC_CPU_DEVICES config MMU bool
