Subject[patch 02/54] Ignore bogus ACPI info for offline CPUs
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

Booting a SMP kernel with maxcpus=1 on a SMP system leads to a hard
hang, because ACPI ignores the maxcpus setting and sends timer broadcast
info for the offline CPUs. This results in a stuck for ever call to
smp_call_function_single() on an offline CPU.

Ignore the bogus information and print a kernel error to remind ACPI
folks to fix it.

Affects 2.6.21 / 2.6.22-rc
