powerpc/smp: Create idle threads on demand and properly reset them
Instead of creating idle threads at boot for all possible CPUs, we create them on demand, like x86 or ARM, and we properly call init_idle to re-initialize an idle thread when a CPU was unplugged and is now re-plugged. Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>
