How about:

All current users of pm_qos_add_request() have the ability to supply the
memory required by the pm_qos routines, so make them do this and
eliminate the kmalloc() with pm_qos_add_request().  This has the double
benefit of making the call never fail and allowing it to be called from
atomic context.

+ signoffs
