Subject[ 007/184] tick: Cleanup NOHZ per cpu data on cpu down
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit 4b0c0f294f60abcdd20994a8341a95c8ac5eeb96 upstream.

Prarit reported a crash on CPU offline/online. The reason is that on
CPU down the NOHZ related per cpu data of the dead cpu is not cleaned
up. If at cpu online an interrupt happens before the per cpu tick
device is registered the irq_enter() check potentially sees stale data
and dereferences a NULL pointer.

Cleanup the data after the cpu is dead.
