Subject[PATCH 0/2] Protect cpu map updates from ACPI processor
Date
CPU system maps are protected with reader/writer locks.  The reader
lock, put_online_cpus(), assures that the maps are not updated while
holding the lock. The writer lock, cpu_hotplug_begin(), is used to
udpate the cpu maps along with cpu_maps_update_begin().

However, the ACPI processor handler updates the cpu maps without
holding the the writer lock. This patchset fixes this problem.

---
The patchset is based on linux-next of the pm tree.

CPU hotplug: Export cpu_hotplug_begin() interface
ACPI: Acquire writer lock to update cpu maps
