x86: Don't send RESCHEDULE_VECTOR to offlined cpus.
From: Gautham R Shenoy <ego@in.ibm.com>

In the x86 native_smp_send_reschedule_function(), don't send the IPI if the
cpu has gone offline already. Warn nevertheless!!

Yup, this afternoon while running
cpu-hotplug stress tests (http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/3/3/11)
in parallel with kern-bench, I got this on the serial console.

from arch/m32r/kernel/smp.c:134

void smp_send_reschedule(int cpu_id)
{
        WARN_ON(cpu_is_offline(cpu_id));
        send_IPI_mask(cpumask_of_cpu(cpu_id), RESCHEDULE_IPI, 1);
}

should this be changed as well?

Note that this may be a side-effect of the bug we are chasing with the 
rd->online problem.

E.g. if the rd->online issue is causing us to route tasks to dead CPUs, 
this phenomenon would probably go away once rd->online is fixed (which I 
believe it is with the patches that were submitted).

Regards,
-Greg

yeah, that makes sense. I've applied your patch nevertheless because it 
is the better failure mode for that code.
