Subject[PATCH 1/7] HOTPLUG: Add CPU_DYING notifier
Date
KVM wants a notification when a cpu is about to die, so it can disable
hardware extensions, but at a time when user processes cannot be scheduled
on the cpu, so it doesn't try to use virtualization extensions after they
have been disabled.

This adds a CPU_DYING notification. The notification is called in atomic
context on the doomed cpu.
