Subject[103/289] percpu: fix list_head init bug in __percpu_counter_init()

It's because there is no initialization code for a list_head contained in
the struct backing_dev_info under CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU, and the bug comes up
when block device drivers calling blk_alloc_queue() are used. In case of
me, I got them by using aoe.
