[PATCH v6 40/46] powerpc: Use get/put_online_cpus_atomic() to preventCPU offline

From: Srivatsa S. Bhat
Date: Mon Feb 18 2013 - 07:46:11 EST

Once stop_machine() is gone from the CPU offline path, we won't be able to
depend on preempt_disable() or local_irq_disable() 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.
