Subject[PATCH 3.2 035/199] hotplug: Make register and unregister notifier API symmetric
3.2.87-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Michal Hocko <mhocko@suse.com>

commit 777c6e0daebb3fcefbbd6f620410a946b07ef6d0 upstream.

Yu Zhao has noticed that __unregister_cpu_notifier only unregisters its
notifiers when HOTPLUG_CPU=y while the registration might succeed even
when HOTPLUG_CPU=n if MODULE is enabled. This means that e.g. zswap
might keep a stale notifier on the list on the manual clean up during
the pool tear down and thus corrupt the list. Resulting in the following

[ 144.964346] BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at ffff880658a2be78

This can be even triggered manually by changing
/sys/module/zswap/parameters/compressor multiple times.

Fix this issue by making unregister APIs symmetric to the register so
there are no surprises.

[bwh: Backported to 3.2:
- The lockless (__-prefixed) variants don't exist
- Keep definition of cpu_notify_nofail() conditional on CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU]
