For cpus present at boot each logical cpu acquires a reference to the
associated device node of the core. This happens in register_cpu() which
is called by topology_init(). The result of this is that we end up with
a reference held by each thread of the core. However, these references
are never freed if the cpu core is dlpar removed.

This patch fixes the reference leaks by acquiring and releasing the
references in the cpu hotplug callbacks un/register_cpu_online().
With this patch symmetric reference counting is observed with both cpus
present at boot, and those dlpar added after boot.
