Subject[PATCH 1/5] i8k: Fix non-SMP operation
Date
Commit f36fdb9f0266 (i8k: Force SMM to run on CPU 0) adds support
for multi-core CPUs to the driver. Unfortunately, that causes it
to fail loading if compiled without SMP support, at least on
32 bit kernels. Kernel log shows "i8k: unable to get SMM Dell
signature", and function i8k_smm is found to return -EINVAL.

Testing revealed that the culprit is the missing return value check
of set_cpus_allowed_ptr.
