Subject[PATCH 7/8] cpu_hotplug: Introduce try_get_online_cpus()
cpu_hotplug: Introduce try_get_online_cpus()

From: Gautham R Shenoy <ego@in.ibm.com>

Subsystems such as workqueues currently cannot use get_online_cpus()
since they deadlock with the workqueue CPU-Hotplug callback code.

For such cases, introduce a new API try_get_online_cpus() which
returns 0 when a cpu-hotplug operation is in progress. It behaves
like get_online_cpus() and returns 1 otherwise.

Based on the status of CPU-Hotplug, the subsystems can take appropriate
action.
