    I don't think anybody here misunderstands it, we're just all very angry
    that its causing so much problems.

    __this_cpu doesn't have preempt debug checks, and there's a lot of
    this_cpu usage that really should have been __this_cpu.

    The very fact that a quick scan still reveals actual bugs should be a
    warning sign that this crap doesn't have enough sanity checks.
