Merge tag 'for-linus' of git://github.com/rustyrussell/linux
Pull cpumask cleanups from Rusty Russell: "(Somehow forgot to send this out; it's been sitting in linux-next, and if you don't want it, it can sit there another cycle)" I'm a sucker for things that actually delete lines of code. Fix up trivial conflict in arch/arm/kernel/kprobes.c, where Rusty fixed a user of &cpu_online_map to be cpu_online_mask, but that code got deleted by commit b21d55e98ac2 ("ARM: 7332/1: extract out code patch function from kprobes"). * tag 'for-linus' of git://github.com/rustyrussell/linux: cpumask: remove old cpu_*_map. documentation: remove references to cpu_*_map. drivers/cpufreq/db8500-cpufreq: remove references to cpu_*_map. remove references to cpu_*_map in arch/
