Hi, Thomas, Rafael,

Yes, I used AE_OK to make sure it can skip the invalid objects and
continue to do the following other objects, I'm also not sure.

For this bug, recently, I sent another patch to remove this check code
away.

   https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/5/17/320

IMO, the duplicate IDs can be avoid by the other code

if (invalid_logical_cpuid(pr->id) || !cpu_present(pr->id)) ---- 1)

As the mapping of cpu_id(pr->id) and processor_id is fixed, when
hot-plugging a physical CPU, if its processor_id is duplicated with the
present, the above condition 1) will be 0, and Linux will do not add
this CPU.

And, when every time the system starts, this code will be executed, it
will waste more time with the increase in the number of CPU.

So I prefer to remove this code.

Thanks,
dou
