SubjectFix "buggy BIOS check" when CPUs are hot removed
From
Date
Fixes a BUG in ACPI hotplugging.

processor_device_array[pr->id] needs to be set to NULL when removing a
CPU. Else the "buggy BIOS check" in acpi_processor_start mistakenly
fires when a CPU is removed from the system and then later re-added.
