This reverts commit 601c942176d8ad8334118bddb747e3720bed24f8.
This patch is designed to ensure that the cpu being offlined is not
present in the affinity mask. But it is a bad idea to overwrite the
affinity variable with cpu_online_mask, even in case that the current
affinity already includes onlined cpus.
So revert this patch to replace it with another one doing exactly
what it intends.
Sudeep: what's the right way forward for this? There seems to be general
agreement that the existing code is broken, but a bunch of different
`fixes'. Can we just take a straight port of what tglx proposed for ARM?
