Subject[patch V2 14/24] cpu/hotplug: Use stop_machine_cpuslocked() in takedown_cpu()
From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de>

takedown_cpu() is a cpu hotplug function invoking stop_machine(). The cpu
hotplug machinery holds the hotplug lock for write.

stop_machine() invokes get_online_cpus() as well. This is correct, but
prevents the conversion of the hotplug locking to a percpu rwsem.

Use stop_machine_cpuslocked() to avoid the nested call.
