Correction, we could call cpus_set_cap() from setup_cpu_features()
for updating the system global capabilities, where we may not hold the
cpu_hotplug_lock. So we could end up calling static_branch_enable_cpuslocked()
without actually holding the lock. Should we do a cpu_hotplug_begin/done in
setup_cpu_feature_capabilities ? I agree it doesn't look that nice. Thoughts ?
