Yeah, I saw only one loop in there and so I think this covers it. The
debug code that I added to the cpu alloc patches did not throw any warning
and bugs anymore. So I am sure that this does not occur on the
configurations where I tested it. If some is running with the latest cpu
area patches then he will get bugs() for accessing an impossible
processors cpu area and warnings for accessing an offline processors cpu
