Yes, I think so. it is a manual way to reset the number.

For this situation, I am investigating to restrict the number of
possible CPUs automatically, But, due to the limitation of ACPI
subsystem, I can do it _before_ setup_percpu_area where the number will
be used.

But, I can provider an indicator to tell the system that whether the
physical CPU hotplug is support or not later. Can we use this indicator
like that in this situation:

if ture

Using for_each_possible_cpu(cpu)

Using for_each_present_cpu(cpu)
