Subject[PATCH v4 1/5] x86: fix list corruption on CPU hotplug
Date
currently if AP wake up is failed, master CPU marks AP as not present
in do_boot_cpu() by calling set_cpu_present(cpu, false).
That leads to following list corruption on the next physical CPU
hotplug:

...
Which is caused by the fact that generic_processor_info() allocates
logical CPU id by calling:

cpu = cpumask_next_zero(-1, cpu_present_mask);

which returns id of previously failed to wake up CPU, since its bit
is cleared by do_boot_cpu() and as result register_cpu() tries to
register another CPU with the same id as already present but failed
to be onlined CPU.

Taking in account that AP will not do anything if master CPU failed to
wake it up, there is no reason to mark that AP as not present and
break next cpu hotplug attempts. As a side effect of not marking AP
as not present, user would be allowed to online it again later.
