Subject[PATCH -v11 resend 01/11] CPU hotplug: Provide a generic helper to disable/enable CPU hotplug
Date
From: "Srivatsa S. Bhat" <srivatsa.bhat@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

There are instances in the kernel where we would like to disable
CPU hotplug (from sysfs) during some important operation. Today
the freezer code depends on this and the code to do it was kinda
tailor-made for that.

Restructure the code and make it generic enough to be useful for
other usecases too.
