    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
