Document work-flows for
  * enabling/detecting modern CPU hotplug interface
  * finding a CPU with pending 'insert/remove' event
  * enumerating present and possible CPUs

v2:
 - fix indent of "other values" that's just above
   being added "Typical usecases:" section
 - unindent "Typical usecases" to put it into right scope
   (Laszlo)
 - squash in ammended (using CPHP_GET_NEXT_CPU_WITH_EVENT_CMD)
   "acpi: cpuhp: spec: document procedure for  enabling modern CPU hotplug"

(1) If you need to post a v3 for other reasons, please consider
adjusting the "===" and "---" lines that surround the new heading.

Otherwise, don't bother.

+      QEMU starts with legacy CPU hotplug interface enabled. Detecting and

+        1. Writes into CPU bitmap are ignored.
+        2. CPU bitmap always has bit#0 set, corresponding to boot CPU.
+
+      Use following steps to detect and enable modern CPU hotplug interface:
+        1. Store 0x0 to the 'CPU selector' register,
+           attempting to switch to modern mode
+        2. Store 0x0 to the 'CPU selector' register,
+           to ensure valid selector value

+
+    - Get a cpu with pending event
+      1. Store 0x0 to the 'CPU selector' register.

+      4. If both bit#1 and bit#2 are clear in the value read, there is no CPU
+         with a pending event and selected CPU remains unchanged.
+      5. Otherwise, read the 'Command data' register. The value read is the
+         selector of the CPU with the pending event (which is already
+         selected).
+
+    - Enumerate CPUs present/non present CPUs
+      01. Set the present CPU count to 0.
+      02. Set the iterator to 0.

+      04. Store 0x0 to the 'Command field' register to make 'Command data'
+          register return 'CPU selector' value of selected CPU
+      05. Read the 'CPU device status fields' register.
+      06. If bit#0 is set, increment the present CPU count.
