Subject[23/91] x86, hotplug: Serialize CPU hotplug to avoid bringup concurrency issues
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Borislav Petkov <bp@amd64.org>

commit d7c53c9e822a4fefa13a0cae76f3190bfd0d5c11 upstream.

When testing cpu hotplug code on 32-bit we kept hitting the "CPU%d:
Stuck ??" message due to multiple cores concurrently accessing the
cpu_callin_mask, among others.

Since these codepaths are not protected from concurrent access due to
the fact that there's no sane reason for making an already complex
code unnecessarily more complex - we hit the issue only when insanely
switching cores off- and online - serialize hotplugging cores on the
sysfs level and be done with it.

[ v2.1: fix !HOTPLUG_CPU build ]
