Eric,
I saw that you already get this issue solved in another email, that is good. I double check your step, and I did not find any problems.

the logic to do CPU release(arch_cpu_release),
1) offline the CPU if the CPU is online
2) unregister CPU

so even if the CPU is online, you can still release the CPU directly. I should check the return value after call cpu_down.

How about add the following checking?

--- arch/x86/kernel/topology.c-orig 2010-12-09 08:03:19.883331001 +0800
+++ arch/x86/kernel/topology.c 2010-12-09 08:01:35.993331000 +0800

if (cpu_online(cpu)) {
printk(KERN_DEBUG "offline cpu %d.\n", cpu);
- cpu_down(cpu);
+ if (!cpu_down(cpu)){

}

arch_unregister_cpu(cpu);

Thanks & Regards,
