Subject[PATCH 2/4] use pr->cdev as a condition for cleanup
Date
The acpi_processor_start() function can fail before creating the
sysfs nodes for thermal cooling. In this case, pr->cdev will be NULL,
and the removal code will break.

This patch uses pr->cdev as a criteria for termination of the
mentioned code, and avoids it, if it was never initialized.
