[PATCH] ppc32: support hotplug cpu on powermacs
This allows cpus to be off-lined on 32-bit SMP powermacs. When a cpu is off-lined, it is put into sleep mode with interrupts disabled. It can be on-lined again by asserting its soft-reset pin, which is connected to a GPIO pin. With this I can off-line the second cpu in my dual G4 powermac, which means that I can then suspend the machine (the suspend/resume code refuses to suspend if more than one cpu is online, and making it cope with multiple cpus is surprisingly messy).
