As a heads-up, with next-20170510 I'm seeing a warning here that I don't
recall seeing when I tested the above, and I'm not sure how to fix it:

[ 0.182362] ------------[ cut here ]------------

The problem is that the secondary CPU doesn't hold the rwsem when it
calls __static_key_slow_inc() in its boot path. It cannot take the
rwsem, since the primaary CPU holds this for the duration of onlining
the secondary CPU.

So far, I haven't figured out how we can avoid this. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mark.
