Subject[v2,5/8] NUMA Hotplug emulator

hi, Paul
I saw your reply on, but I did not find your email
in my mailbox, you might forget to cc to me.

I think that your register_cpu_node interface seems good, but this will
remove the interface register_cpu. it is not the original purpose of the
emulator, we want to emulate the oringal process, but we did not want to change
the old interface, that is a rule.

I want to share some piece of codes, and I did not want to do so much change,
so I call register_cpu and register_cpu_emu in the same function. yes, it is a
painful interface, I will add a function arch_register_cpu_emu to solve it.

Real hotplug process:
- call register_cpu

Emulated hotplug process:
- call register_cpu_emu
