    Subject[patch 17/34] appldata_base: Misc cpuinit annotations and bugfix
    From: Satyam Sharma <>

    appldata_offline_cpu() is only called from __cpuinit-marked hotplug
    notifier callback and from the __exit-marked module_exit function,
    therefore candidate for __cpuexit.

    BTW the __exit module_exit function appldata_exit() of this driver fails to
    unregister_hotcpu_notifier() the notifier_block that was registered by
    appldata_init() during module startup. This will lead to oops if hotplug
    notification comes after module has been unloaded. Let's fix this by
    unregistering the notifier appropriately (before appldata_offline_cpu()'ing
    the CPUs).
