OK, I've done that for this and the MIPS GIC patch, using the dynamic
CPUHP_AP_ONLINE_DYN state - I hope that is ok.

Sure, the new state machine makes this much nicer registering the
on/offline callbacks on one state.

Yeah - I've had to work around the framework a little here since we
require the opposite sense to the callbacks - activate the driver when
the cpu is offlined and vice versa. In practice the only issue this gave
me was that by default the framework invokes the teardown callback when
the state is removed, so I used __cpuhp_remove_state() to avoid creating
a remote processor device as the driver is being removed.

Thanks,
Matt
