I applied your patch on Jeremy's latest kernel.org spufs tree.

 > +void oprofile_add_value(unsigned long value, int cpu) {
 > +	struct oprofile_cpu_buffer * cpu_buf = &cpu_buffer[cpu];

Shouldn't it be
	struct oprofile_cpu_buffer *cpu_buf = &per_cpu(cpu_buffer, cpu);

At least my compiler complained about that.

I booted a kernel with your patches applied and the system locked up
