Subject[PATCH 4.9 50/56] x86/smp: Enforce CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU when SMP=y
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit bebd024e4815b1a170fcd21ead9c2222b23ce9e6 upstream.

The SMT disable 'nosmt' command line argument is not working properly when
CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU is disabled. The teardown of the sibling CPUs which are
required to be brought up due to the MCE issues, cannot work. The CPUs are
then kept in a half dead state.

As the 'nosmt' functionality has become popular due to the speculative
hardware vulnerabilities, the half torn down state is not a proper solution
to the problem.

Enforce CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU=y when SMP is enabled so the full operation is
possible.

- Say Y here to allow turning CPUs off and on. CPUs can be

- Say N if you want to disable CPU hotplug.
