Subject[patch 42/71] clockevents: prevent multiple init/shutdown
2.6.26-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>
commit 9c17bcda991000351cb2373f78be7e4b1c44caa3 upstream

While chasing the C1E/HPET bugreports I went through the clock events
code inch by inch and found that the broadcast device can be initialized
and shutdown multiple times. Multiple shutdowns are not critical, but
useless waste of time. Multiple initializations are simply broken. Another
CPU might have the device in use already after the first initialization and
the second init could just render it unusable again.
