I was originally worried about races, that is why i tried to put
everything into cpu_data. But that didn't work out because something
clears it. Perhaps the right solution would be some extra per_cpu
data variables, and search for the first match. I suspect that would
be simpler. But if that doesn't work I guess something like Thomas'
example will work.

I assume you will handle it, Prarit?
