Subject[PATCH RFC] pm_qos_requirement might sleep
Even after applying some fixes posted by Chirag and Peter Z, I'm still
getting some messages in my log like this
BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context swapper(0) at
in_atomic():1 [00000001], irqs_disabled():1
Pid: 0, comm: swapper Tainted: G W #2

Call Trace:

.....[<ffffffff80466af0>] .. ( <= start_secondary+0x186/0x18b)

The following simple patch makes the messages disappear - however,
there may be a better more fine grained solution, but the problem is
also that all the functions are designed to use the same lock.
