[S390] smp: fix sigp sense handling

sigp sense only returns the status of a cpu if it is non zero. If the
status of the sensed cpu is all zeros condition code 0 (accpeted) is
set and no status bits are returned.
The current code however assumes that a status was returned and tests
bits in it. This means uninitalized data is accessed with random
Worst case is that the code that checks if cpu is offline on cpu
hotplug assumes that the target cpu is offline while it is still
running. This leads potentially to memory corruption since resources
that are still needed by the target cpu will be freed and could be
resused while still in use.
