Yup, works. Applied.

Can we please get rid of the crazy CPU notifier crap from the perf
code, and do this like we do most other wrmsr's etc? Doing

git grep "case CPU_" arch/x86/kernel/cpu

shows that the perf layer seems to be full of this kind of BS. This is
all CPU state, it should be initialized by the regular CPU
initialization code, not hooked up with some random callbacks.
