I'm curious:

The new symbol can't be selected without the other symbol.

And the other symbol automatically selects the new one.

Why are you adding a second symbol that means the same thing as the existing symbol?

Couldn't that just test HOTPLUG_CPU? What's the second symbol for? (You can have
empty stub functions when architectures don't support a thing...)
