    OK, I'll bite - how do you build an X86-64 kernel that doesn't have
    CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU selected? Try as I might, even if I have PM_SLEEP=n,
    PM_SLEEP_SMP insists on being set, and then selecting HOTPLUG_SMP. For the
    record, I do *not* need/desire S2R, S2D, 'suspend', or similar functionality.

    Is there some subtle reason why PM_SLEEP_SMP has to be on even without PM_SLEEP?
