    Subject[04/44] percpu: fix list_head init bug in __percpu_counter_init()
    2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


    From: Masanori ITOH <>

    commit 8474b591faf3bb0a1e08a60d21d6baac498f15e4 upstream.

    It's because there is no initialization code for a list_head contained in
    the struct backing_dev_info under CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU, and the bug comes up
    when block device drivers calling blk_alloc_queue() are used. In case of
    me, I got them by using aoe.
