115 lines removed... This is my favourite part of the series so far :)

Hmm, does cpu_free(NULL, 0) do something? Seems like it shouldn't, for
symmetry with free().

OK, we've *never* had a report of the per-cpu alignment message, so I'd be
happy to pass that through to cpu_alloc() and have it fail. Also, the if
(!percpu) cases should be combined.

As above.

Where did __per_cpu_size come from? I missed it in the earlier patches...

Thanks,
Rusty.
