Definitely, that's what we have -next for!

You are actually right. This comes from the first version of the patch
(I basically rewrote it after the common code rafactoring), and cdbs was
meant to be always the one for the master CPU while cpu should indicate
the one being initialized. Then the thing turned out as:

A - I dropped the code specific for master cdbs here as it was already
there on another code path following the rafactoring.
B - I passed j_cdbs = dbs_data->get_cpu_cdbs(j) in the init cycle while
it was really meant to be get_cpu_cdbs(cpu).

Same reason, get_cpu_cdbs(j) was meant to be get_cpu_cdbs(cpu) but
that's not used anymore in the last version of the patch, and the same
for the last hunk.

I'll send a patch to clean this up, thanks for spotting it!
