I mean to say that we could have no CPU devices after the *second*

could just as well panic if register_cpu() fails at boot time.)

I think I'd rather just panic - if you have allocation issues during
early boot, the machine is hosed anyway - and then get rid of the
first patch?

Willing to send out a new patch along those lines (and with UML added)?

Thanks,
