Right.

struct coresight_device *
coresight_find_default_sink(struct coresight_device *csdev)
{
        int depth = 0;

        /* look for a default sink if we have not found for this device */
        if (!csdev->def_sink) {
                if (coresight_is_percpu_source(csdev))
                        csdev->def_sink = per_cpu(csdev_sink, source_ops(csdev)->cpu_id(csdev));
                if (!csdev->def_sink)
                        csdev->def_sink = coresight_find_sink(csdev, &depth);
        }
        return csdev->def_sink;
}

Would this be better instead ? coresight_find_sink() is invoked both when the
source is not percpu (traditional coresight sources) and also as a fallback in
case a percpu sink is not found for the percpu source device.
