Yes, yes it does. It does a lot of similar things though. My patch
does not take advantage of the DECLARE_PER_CPU macros, etc. But it also
offers node-topology info and per-node meminfo. I'd like to see them
work together. Most of the conflict is simply in where we put the
driverfs CPU code. Your patch moves it (w/ additions) to kernel/cpu.c,
whereas mine moves it (also w/ different additions) to
drivers/base/cpu.c. I think that the drivers/base is a bit more
appropriate for the driverfs specific code (struct device_driver
cpu_driver, the array of cpu_devices...). Also, I made the registration
routines arch-specific, because I figured that different architectures
may want to add arch-specific info, and register devices at different
times, in different orders, etc. I also didn't incorporate the
cpu_notifier stuff, which I should have.

What do you think of my patch (other than the obvious that it conflicts
with yours)?
