Ben - how about that

  static DEFINE_PER_CPU(struct cpu, cpu_devices);

approach that Richard uses in his patch, instead of the kcalloc? And
clearly UM should also do that CONFIG_GENERIC_CPU_DEVICES thing with
your patch.

Richard - does Ben's patch work for  you too if you just add "select
GENERIC_CPU_DEVICES" in the UM Kconfig too (Kconfig.common, probably)?
