Wanlong Gao - Jan. 25, 2013, 8:36 a.m.
Add a cpu notifier to virtio-net, so that we can reset the
virtqueue affinity if the cpu hotplug happens. It improve
the performance through enabling or disabling the virtqueue
affinity after doing cpu hotplug.

V6->V7: no change
V5->V6:
	deal with CPU_DOWN_PREPARE separately by just cleaning affinity
V4->V5:
	New method to deal with the cpu hotplug actions (Rusty)
