SubjectRe: [PATCH -tip/cpus4096-v2] cpumask: fix cpumask of call_function_data

Ingo, because of these concerns I recommend you revert
d4de5ac3b5e70928c86e3e5ac311f16cbf2e9ab3 (cpumask: smp_call_function_many())
for now, and apply this less contentious version.

Subject: cpumask: smp_call_function_many()
From: Rusty Russell <>

Transition from cpumask_t-taking smp_call_function_mask() to a new
smp_call_function_many() which takes a struct cpumask * instead.

(Naming is inspired by smp_call_function_single).

Unfortunately, converting the function implementation properly is
non-trivial, but what we care about is the API, so this simply wraps

Note that the new one returns void: the old one couldn't fail either
unless there was a logic bug.

The old smp_call_function_mask() isn't marked __deprecated, because
sparc64 builds with -Werr in arch/sparc (thanks Stephen).
