We haven't worked around it - the code which provoked the oops that was
seen (in the cpufreq code) was changed not to call it, which has the
effect of making the problem "go away", at least for now.

We still have the problem that if it does get called on UP, it'll blow
up - and I don't see any point in complicating the code for something
that never happens right now.
