I think we should just enable CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU. I don't see any other
solution to this problem. The changelog of the below (untested) patch
explains the reasoning. (BTW, I'm not sure if this is the best way to
alter the Kconfig in order to enable both HOTPLUG and HOTPLUG_CPU. If
there is a better way to do it, let's go for it).

Also, this patch applies on current mainline. We need a separate backport
for 3.9 (because current mainline has a new line - "select HAVE_CONTEXT_TRACKING"
which is not present in 3.9, and this interferes with the patch).

Subject: [PATCH] powerpc: Enable CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU on PPC_PSERIES SMP builds

Adam Lackorzynski reported the following build failure on
!CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU configuration:

  CC      arch/powerpc/kernel/rtas.o
arch/powerpc/kernel/rtas.c: In function ‘rtas_cpu_state_change_mask’:
arch/powerpc/kernel/rtas.c:843:4: error: implicit declaration of function ‘cpu_down’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
cc1: all warnings being treated as errors
make[1]: *** [arch/powerpc/kernel/rtas.o] Error 1
make: *** [arch/powerpc/kernel] Error 2

The build fails because cpu_down() is defined only under CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU.

Looking further, the mobility code in pseries is one of the call-sites which
uses rtas_ibm_suspend_me(), which in turn calls rtas_cpu_state_change_mask().
And the mobility code is unconditionally compiled-in (it does not fall under
any Kconfig option). And commit 120496ac (powerpc: Bring all threads online
prior to migration/hibernation) which introduced this build regression is
critical for the proper functioning of the migration code. So it appears
that the only solution to this problem is to enable CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU if
SMP is enabled on PPC_PSERIES platforms. So make that change in the Kconfig.
