powerpc/powernv: Fix problems in onlining CPUs
At present, on the powernv platform, if you off-line a CPU that was online, and then try to on-line it again, the kernel generates a warning message "OPAL Error -1 starting CPU n". Furthermore, if the CPU is a secondary thread that was used by KVM while it was off-line, the CPU fails to come online. The first problem is fixed by only calling OPAL to start the CPU the first time it is on-lined, as indicated by the cpu_start field of its PACA being zero. The second problem is fixed by restoring the cpu_start field to 1 instead of 0 when using the CPU within KVM.
