Last thing when I look at the output of dmesg I get the
below), I am slightly worried, since I have read somewhere that the kernel needs to be patched to include a more recent version of powernow-k8. Is this error expected, or should I patch?
Known problem, but harmless. Just ignore for now. Some future update kernel will likely fix it.
I can submit a patch, but I'm not sure what to do.
The code loops through NR_CPUS and ignores the ones that are not online: if (!cpu_online(i)) continue;
This code used to work, but the hotplug changes broke it. What's the correct code now to check if a cpu isn't available?
