    SubjectWARN... Device 'cpu1' does not have a release() function, it is broken and must be fixed. when doing 'xl vcpu-set <guest_id> 1'
    When I bring a CPU down in a guest (which should be the same as bringing a
    CPU down using the ACPI framework), I get this:

    Looking at "commit e032d80774315869aa2285b217fdbbfed86c0b49

    mce: fix warning messages about static struct mce_device
    "

    it looks like the corret fix is to make the 'cpu_devices' in
    arch/x86/kernel/topology.c to be changed to be more dynamic
    (or perhaps have an empty release function)?

    Is anybody else hitting this with ACPI CPU hot-unplug? Or do I have
    the privilige of being the first? Oh, I hadn't done a full bisection
    but v3.2 does not have this.

    The guest config is quite simple:
    extra="console=hvc0 debug earlyprintk=xen memblock=debug"
    kernel="/mnt/lab/bootstrap-x86_64/vmlinuz"
    ramdisk="/mnt/lab/bootstrap-x86_64/initramfs.cpio.gz"
    memory=1024
    maxmem=2048
    vcpus=2
    name="bootstrap-x86_64"
    on_crash="preserve"
    vfb = [ 'vnc=1, vnclisten=0.0.0.0,vncunused=1']
