Subject[PATCH] x86_64 vsyscall fails to compile when CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is disabled
x86_64 vsyscall fails to compile when CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is disabled

The following change attempted to fix up the notifier structure
when CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is disabled:

[PATCH] x86-64: Fix vgetcpu when CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is disabled

It seems to leave a reference to the cpu_vsyscall_notifier which is
not declared unles CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is defined, leading to the following
compile time error:

arch/x86_64/kernel/vsyscall.c:310: error: `cpu_vsyscall_notifier'
undeclared (first use in this function)

Make the hotcpu_notifier dependant on CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU.
