[PATCH] Allow NULL pointers in percpu_free
The patch (as824b) makes percpu_free() ignore NULL arguments, as one would expect for a deallocation routine. (Note that free_percpu is #defined as percpu_free in include/linux/percpu.h.) A few callers are updated to remove now-unneeded tests for NULL. A few other callers already seem to assume that passing a NULL pointer to percpu_free() is okay! The patch also removes an unnecessary NULL check in percpu_depopulate().
