This can be:

static DEFINE_SPINLOCK(workarea_lock);

Then you can get rid of the runtime initializer.

Is there a better return value here that might be more descriptive than -1?

What's the point of this if check if you return 0 either way?

Can't this just be?

BLOCKING_NOTIFIER_HEAD(pSeries_reconfig_chain);
