Srivatsa S. Bhat - Feb. 18, 2013, 12:42 p.m.
Once stop_machine() is gone from the CPU offline path, we won't be able to
depend on preempt_disable() or local_irq_disable() to prevent CPUs from
going offline from under us.

Use the get/put_online_cpus_atomic() APIs to prevent CPUs from going offline,
while invoking from atomic context (in vmx_vcpu_load() to prevent CPUs from
going offline while clearing vmcs).
