If a given cpu is not in cpu_present and cpu hotplug
is disabled, arch can skip setting up the cpu_dev.

Arch cpuidle driver should pass correct cpu mask
for registration, but failing to do so by the driver
causes error to propagate and crash like this:

[   30.076045] Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0x00000048

Validating cpu_dev fixes the crash and reports correct error message like:

[   30.163506] Failed to register cpuidle device for cpu136
[   30.173329] Registration of powernv driver failed.
