Nathan Fontenot - Nov. 25, 2009, 7:12 a.m.
In order to support kernel DLPAR of CPU resources we need to provide an
interface to add (probe) and remove (release) the resource from the system.
This patch Creates new generic probe and release sysfs files to facilitate
cpu probe/release.  The probe/release interface provides for allowing each
arch to supply their own routines for implementing the backend of adding
and removing cpus to/from the system.

This also creates the powerpc specific stubs to handle the arch callouts 
from writes to the sysfs files.

The creation and use of these files is regulated by the 
CONFIG_ARCH_CPU_PROBE_RELEASE option so that only architectures that need the
capability will have the files created.

Can you document these new sysfs files with some information in the
Documentation/ABI/ directory please?

thanks,
