[PATCH] x86_64: Don't reserve hotplug CPUs by default



Most users don't need it so no need to waste memory.
This means an user has to specify the appropiate number of
hotplug CPUs on the command line with additional_cpus=...
or fix their BIOS to follow the convention in
Documentation/x86-64/cpu-hotplug-spec

* Three ways to find out the number of additional hotplug CPUs:
* - If the BIOS specified disabled CPUs in ACPI/mptables use that.
* - otherwise use half of the available CPUs or 2, whatever is more.
* - The user can overwrite it with additional_cpus=NUM
* - Otherwise don't reserve additional CPUs.
* We do this because additional CPUs waste a lot of memory.
