xen/acpi-processor: Don't dereference struct acpi_processor on all CPUs.
With git commit c705c78c0d0835a4aa5d0d9a3422e3218462030c "acpi: Export the acpi_processor_get_performance_info" we are now using a different mechanism to access the P-states. The acpi_processor per-cpu structure is set and filtered by the core ACPI code which shrinks the per_cpu contents to only online CPUs. In the past we would call acpi_processor_register_performance() which would have not tried to dereference offline cpus. With the new patch and the fact that the loop we take is for for_all_possible_cpus we end up crashing on some machines. We could modify the loop to be for online_cpus - but all the other loops in the code use possible_cpus (for a good reason) - so lets leave it as so and just check if per_cpu(processor) is NULL. With this patch we will bypass the !online but possible CPUs. This fixes: IP: [<ffffffffa00d13b5>] xen_acpi_processor_init+0x1b6/0xe01 [xen_acpi_processor] PGD 4126e6067 PUD 4126e3067 PMD 0 Oops: 0002 [#1] SMP Pid: 432, comm: modprobe Not tainted 3.9.0-rc3+ #28 To be filled by O.E.M.
