Argh, can't remember, can't find it with archive grep. I just have a
mental note that it got fixed somehow. Perhaps by uprevving the compiler
version? We certainly have a ton of uninitialised DEFINE_PER_CPUs in there
nowadays and people's kernels aren't crashing.

Rusty, do you recall if/how we fixed the
DEFINE_PER_CPU-needs-explicit-initialisation thing?
