To assing new CPU number, I prepared new cpu bitmask.

The following two steps are necessary to assign CPU number to APIC ID.
1. Check whether APIC ID has been assigned CPU number
2. Assign new CPU number if ACPI ID has not been assigned CPU number (it
means apicid_to_cpuid[] returns -1)

Step 1. is checked by apicid_to_cpuid[]. And step 2. assigns new CPU
number by using cpu_used_mask.

To keep cpu number, cpumask must not be cleared by hot removing CPU.
If cpumask is cleared by hot removing CPU, the cpumask cannot be used
to keep CPU number.

Currently, cpu_present_map is used to assign CPU number. But the cpumask
is cleared by hot removing CPU since the mask is prepared to remember
existed CPUs in the system. So the cpu_present_map must be cleared
at CPU hot remove.

I confirmed whether present cpumasks (cpu_possible_map, cpu_online_map
et al) is usable or not for this purpose. But there is no cpumask that
can be used to keep CPU number. So I prepared new cpu bitmask.

When apicid_to_cpuid[] return -1, kernel assigns new CPU number. For
this, the cpu_used_mask is necessary.
