Subject[PATCH v6 1/3] powerpc: Fix cpu_online_cores_map to return only online threads mask
Currently, cpu_online_cores_map returns a mask, which for every core with
at least one online thread, has the bit for thread 0 of the core set to 1,
and the bits for all other threads of the core set to 0. But thread 0 of
the core itself may not be online always. In such cases, if the returned
mask is used for IPI, then it'll cause IPIs to be skipped on cores where
the first thread is offline, because the IPI code refuses to send IPIs to
offline threads.

Fix this by setting the bit of the first online thread in the core.
This is done by fixing this in the underlying function

The result has the property that for all cores with online threads, there
is one bit set in the returned map. And further, all bits that are set in
the returned map correspond to online threads.
