Hmm, weird. Your diff is against does not correspond with my tree, which
supposedly is in linux-next.

Commit 8266810 "[ARM] smp: fix cpumask usage in ARM SMP code" (in my tree
since May 17th) fixes some of the areas which your patch touches. See:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/smp

I suggest hanging fire on this until the ARM tree is merged into mainline.
