Subject: cpuhotplug: Keep enough storage space if SMP=n
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

The cpuhp_bp_states array is cut short when CONFIG_SMP=n, but the dynamically
registered callbacks are stored nevertheless and happily scribble outside of
the array bounds.

We need to store them in case that the state is unregistered so we can invoke
the teardown function. That's independent of CONFIG_SMP. Make sure the array
is large enough.
