Subject[RFC/PATCH 3/4] introduce cpu_add and cpu_remove

These functions safely update cpu_present_map (i.e. with the
cpucontrol semaphore held) and register or unregister the cpu device
as needed. These are needed by systems which can add or remove cpus
from the system after boot (e.g. ppc64 and ia64), and are intended to
be called from the platform-specific code such as the ACPI or Open
Firmware layers.
