In kernel 4.10-rc1, the kernel routines register_cpu_notifier() and 
unregister_cpu_notifier() have been removed and their function replaced by 
callbacks from the hotplug state machine. After looking at the changes required 
in some other drivers, I have seen that the required changes will not be 
trivial. Before I start doing the work, I want to know if the changes have been 
started and/or done by Oracle.
