SubjectRe: [PATCH 02/27] smpboot: Add provisions for arch-specific locking around cpu_online_mask
Adding arch maintainers to Cc, which I had missed earlier. No changes to the 
patch.

Subject: [PATCH 02/27] smpboot: Add provisions for arch-specific locking around cpu_online_mask

We want to make smp booting as generic as possible and remove code
duplication in arch/ directories.

While manipulating the cpu_online_mask, x86 uses an additional lock, i.e.,
'vector_lock'. So provide a generic way to implement such arch-specific
extra locking, by providing weakly defined functions arch_vector_lock()
and arch_vector_unlock() which can be overriden by different architectures
suitably.
