Subject[patch 0/2] enhance stop machine infrastructure for MTRR rendezvous sequence
First patch enhance the stop machine infrastructure so that we
can call __stop_machine() from the cpu hotplug path, where the calling
cpu is not yet online. We do allow this for already for !CONFIG_SMP. So this
patch brings the CONFIG_SMP behavior inline with !CONFIG_SMP

Second patch uses the enhanced __stop_machine() to implement the x86 MTRR
init rendezvous sequence and thus remove the duplicate implementation
of stop machine using stop_one_cpu_nowait(). This duplicate implementation
of stop machine can potentially lead to deadlock if there is a parallel
system wide rendezvous using __stop_machine().

Both these address one of the deadlocks mentioned in the
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=672008

thanks,
suresh
