Srivatsa S. Bhat - June 27, 2013, 7:55 p.m.
Once stop_machine() is gone from the CPU offline path, we won't be able
to depend on disabling preemption 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.
