    SubjectBUG: cpufreq notification broken
    [PATCH] cpufreq: make the transition_notifier chain use SRCU

    breaks cpu frequency notification users, which register the callback on
    core_init level. Interestingly enough the registration survives the
    uninitialized head, but the registered user is lost by:

    static int __init init_cpufreq_transition_notifier_list(void)
    return 0;

    This affects i386, x86_64 and sparc64 AFAICT, which call
    register_notifier early in the arch code.

    Hmm, there are no static initializers for srcu and the only way to fix
    this up is to move the arch calls to postcore_init.
