Tony pointed out that there is no guarentee that a domain will come back up once
its down, so the above issue of rmid->busy staying at > 0 can still happen.
So I will delete this -
if (has_busy_rmid(r, d))
cqm_setup_limbo_handler(d);

and add this when a domain is powered down -
for each rmid in d->rmid_busy_llc
if (--entry->busy)
free_rmid(rmid);

We have no way to know if the L3 was indeed flushed (or package was powered
off). This may lead to incorrect counts in rare scenarios but can document the
same.

Thanks,
vikas
