[PATCH] cpu hotplug: revert init patch submitted for 2.6.17
In 2.6.17, there was a problem with cpu_notifiers and XFS. I provided a band-aid solution to solve that problem. In the process, i undid all the changes you both were making to ensure that these notifiers were available only at init time (unless CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is defined). We deferred the real fix to 2.6.18. Here is a set of patches that fixes the XFS problem cleanly and makes the cpu notifiers available only at init time (unless CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is defined). If CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is defined then cpu notifiers are available at run time. This patch reverts the notifier_call changes made in 2.6.17 Signed-off-by: Chandra Seetharaman <sekharan@us.ibm.com> Cc: Ashok Raj <ashok.raj@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
