In order for the ACPI-based CPU hotplug (I mean physical, not just the
software offline/online we do in the kernel) to work, there have to be
objects in the ACPI namespace corresponding to all of the processors
in question.

If they are not present, there is no way to signal insertion and eject
the processors safely.
