Bugger, sorry I missed that one. Is the >= 16K CPUs case supported elsewhere
in Linux? The x86 Kconfig appears to clamp NR_CPUS to 8192 iiuc.

Anyway, additional patch below. Ingo -- please can you apply this on top?

Thanks,

Will

Subject: [PATCH] locking/qspinlock: Remove duplicate clear_pending function
 from PV code

The native clear_pending function is identical to the PV version, so the
latter can simply be removed. This fixes the build for systems with >=
16K CPUs using the PV lock implementation.
