[PATCH] cpu hoptlug: avoid usage of smp_processor_id() in preemptible code
Replace smp_processor_id() with any_online_cpu(cpu_online_map) in order to avoid lots of "BUG: using smp_processor_id() in preemptible [00000001] code:..." messages in case taking a cpu online fails. All the traces start at the last notifier_call_chain(...) in kernel/cpu.c. Since we hold the cpu_control semaphore it shouldn't be any problem to access cpu_online_map. The reason why cpu_up failed is simply that the cpu that was supposed to be taken online wasn't even there. That is because on s390 we never know when a new cpu comes and therefore cpu_possible_map consists of only ones and doesn't reflect reality.
