smpboot: Provide infrastructure for percpu hotplug threads
Provide a generic interface for setting up and tearing down percpu threads. On registration the threads for already online cpus are created and started. On deregistration (modules) the threads are stoppped. During hotplug operations the threads are created, started, parked and unparked. The datastructure for registration provides a pointer to percpu storage space and optional setup, cleanup, park, unpark functions. These functions are called when the thread state changes. Each implementation has to provide a function which is queried and returns whether the thread should run and the thread function itself. The core code handles all state transitions and avoids duplicated code in the call sites.
