SubjectRe: [PATCH 31/48] uv: Replace __get_cpu_var
The driver seems to use local64_t to define a single static instance of a
counter and then seems to think that it is safe to increment the counter
from multiple processors using local64_inc and friends. Common
misunderstanding and a reason why I wanted the this_cpu operations.

The counters seem to be exported via module parameters.. So I guess we
need to define these per cpu and then sum them up when they need to be


Maybe lets move this outside of this patchset.
