Fenghua has this patchkit to allow offlining the BSP. What happens then?

It would be good to understand why initializing APs from other APs
should not work. Not aware of such a limitation in x86.

AFAIK when we online a random cpu after boot there is no effort to do it
from BSP. Why does that work and not from the kexec boot?
