x86_cpu_to_apicid used to be in .init.data and now it's never freed after
boot?

If the author isn't you, then the patch should start with a single line
that says "From: name <email>" of the author followed by a blank line.
It's also strange that the author doesn't have a sign-off line.

Your email client also has corrupted the inline patch, please see
Documentation/email-clients.txt.

And, finally, please send this to the x86 maintainers once fixed. See
./scripts/get_maintainers.pl <your patch>.

Shouldn't this be BAD_APICID? Not sure where we check for -1.
