    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).
