Subject[patch V4 13/25] x86/hotplug: Silence APIC and NMI when CPU is dead
In order to support IPI/NMI broadcasting via the shorthand mechanism side
effects of shorthands need to be mitigated:

Shorthand IPIs and NMIs hit all CPUs including unplugged CPUs

Neither of those can be handled on unplugged CPUs for obvious reasons.

It would be trivial to just fully disable the APIC via the enable bit in
MSR_APICBASE. But that's not possible because clearing that bit on systems
based on the 3 wire APIC bus would require a hardware reset to bring it
back as the APIC would lose track of bus arbitration. On systems with FSB
delivery APICBASE could be disabled, but it has to be guaranteed that no
interrupt is sent to the APIC while in that state and it's not clear from
the SDM whether it still responds to INIT/SIPI messages.

Therefore stay on the safe side and switch the APIC into soft disabled mode
so it won't deliver any regular vector to the CPU.

NMIs are still propagated to the 'dead' CPUs. To mitigate that add a check
for the CPU being offline on early nmi entry and if so bail.

Note, this cannot use the stop/restart_nmi() magic which is used in the
alternatives code. A dead CPU cannot invoke nmi_enter() or anything else
due to RCU and other reasons.

V4: Use cpu_is_offline() instead of an extra per CPU variable - suggested
by PeterZ.
