SubjectRe: [patch for 2.6.30 2/2] arch/x86/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/acpi-cpufreq.c: avoid cross-CPU interrupts

How's this?

Subject: cpumask: cpumask_closest()

Impact: new function

Andrew points out that acpi-cpufreq uses cpumask_any, when it really
would prefer to use the same CPU if possible (to avoid an IPI). In
general, this seems a good idea to offer.
