How right you are! We don't even need the mask in the first place.
The code can be refactored at the same time it is made to actually
work. It turns out that the per_cpu command doesn't work properly at
the moment in the mainline.

That means I will drop your patch, but I really do appreciate you
pointing this out.

Thanks!
Jason.

Subject: [PATCH] kdb: fix per_cpu command to remove supress mask
Date: Fri Oct 29 08:04:16 CDT 2010

Rusty pointed out that the per_cpu command uses up lots of space on
the stack and the cpu supress mask is probably not needed.

This patch removes the need for the supress mask as well as fixing up
the following problems with the kdb per_cpu command:
* The per_cpu command should allow an address as an argument
* When you have more data than can be displayed on one screen allow
the user to break out of the print loop.
