Subject[PATCH 4/7] smp/hotplug: Callback vs state-machine consistency
While the generic callback functions have an 'int' return and thus
appear to be allowed to return error, this is not true for all states.

Specifically, what used to be STARTING/DYING are ran with IRQs
disabled from critical parts of CPU bringup/teardown and are not
allowed to fail. Add WARNs to enforce this rule.

But since some callbacks are indeed allowed to fail, we have the
situation where a state-machine rollback encounters a failure, in this
case we're stuck, we can't go forward and we can't go back. Also add a
WARN for that case.

AFAICT this is a fundamental 'problem' with no real obvious solution.
We want the 'prepare' callbacks to allow failure on either up or down.
Typically on prepare-up this would be things like -ENOMEM from
resource allocations, and the typical usage in prepare-down would be
something like -EBUSY to avoid CPUs being taken away.
