Yes, what a mess this is. ;-\

There's no such thing as ->blocks[block] array. We assign simply the
threshold_block to it in allocate_threshold_blocks:

per_cpu(threshold_banks, cpu)[bank]->blocks = b;

And I can't say the design of this thing is really friendly but it is
still no excuse that I missed that during review. Grrr.

So, Yazen, what really needs to happen here is to iterate the
bank->blocks->miscj list to find the block you're looking for and return
its address, the opposite to this here:

if (per_cpu(threshold_banks, cpu)[bank]->blocks) {
list_add(&b->miscj,
&per_cpu(threshold_banks, cpu)[bank]->blocks->miscj);
} else {
per_cpu(threshold_banks, cpu)[bank]->blocks = b;
}

and don't forget to look at ->blocks itself.

And then you need to make sure that searching for block addresses still
works when resuming from suspend so that you can avoid the RDMSR IPIs.

Ok?
