This patch is already in pull request.

I don't understand this. To me it looks fairly normal - the check has
been fixed and merged (likely) in -rc1. After that we have 2 month to
spot, fix and test all issues discovered with correct cpumask_check().

I'm not insisting in moving this series in -rc1. Let's give it review
and careful testing, and merge in -rc2, 3 or whatever is appropriate.

Regarding cpumask_check() patch - I'd like to have it in -rc1 because
it will give people enough time to test their code...

Would it work?

Thanks,
Yury
