Subject[PATCH v3 11/15] driver: xen: Replace cpu_up/down with device_online/offline
The core device API performs extra housekeeping bits that are missing
from directly calling cpu_up/down.

See commit a6717c01ddc2 ("powerpc/rtas: use device model APIs and
serialization during LPM") for an example description of what might go

This also prepares to make cpu_up/down a private interface for anything
but the cpu subsystem.

Juergen, there's a new add_cpu() which you should be CCed on. I wasn't sure if
I could safely convert this to use it since I couldn't find whether the
notifier already hold the lock or not. If you think remove_cpu() is safe, let
me know and I can send an updated patch.
