Why is this only enabled for HOTPLUG_CPU? It looks like it could
be used for the !HOTPLUG case too. That would be preferable
to have less ifdefs.

Should be __cpuinitdata

Didnt we agree to not do these changes?

Lots more cases in this file. The patch would be a lot smaller without
them.

Why is this needed?

Why these two ifdefs? If possible remove them.

Why this flush again?

How do you prevent the BP from being offlined? Currently
some stuff (NMIs, timer) rely on it being present :/ Longer
term they need to be fixed of course, but short term I would
refuse to offline it. Needs an audit probably.

This wont work with variable timer tick. Need some other way
to kick the timer. It looks unreliable anyways.

No idea what all these TLB flushes are good for. Can you describe
them?

e.g. here you have the first BP dependency... Ideally
it would shift if it is ever offlined.

Please remove the ifdef.
