Subject[PATCH 1/1] mm: Prevent dereferencing non-allocated per_cpu variables
Change loops controlled by 'for (i = 0; i < NR_CPUS; i++)' to use
'for_each_possible_cpu(i)' when there's a _remote possibility_ of
dereferencing a non-allocated per_cpu variable involved.

All files except mm/vmstat.c are x86 arch.

Based on 2.6.24-rc3-mm1 .

Thanks to pageexec@freemail.hu for pointing this out.
