    Imho, this is not right. This change the meaning of CPU_DEAD, and so
    we should fix all users of CPU_DEAD as well.

    How about

    the processes are still frozen

    after we thaw_processes

    This way we can add processing of the new CPU_DEAD_WHATEVER event where
    it may help. We don't need to change (for example) workqueue.c with this
    patch, we can do it in a separate patch.

    CPU_UP_PREPARE is called after freeze_processes()... Probably this works,
    but imho this is no good. Suppose for a moment that khelper will be frozen
    (yes, yes it can't be), then we can't do kthread_create().
