Subject[PATCH] kernel: cpu: Handle hotplug failure for state CPUHP_AP_IDLE_DEAD
Once the tear down hotplug handler is run, cpu is dead and enters
into CPUHP_AP_IDLE_DEAD state. Any callbacks that fail in the state
machine with state < CPUHP_AP_IDLE must be treated as fatal as this
could result into timer not beig migrated away from dead cpu and run
into issues like work queue lock ups, sched_clock timer wrapping to
zero as sched_clock_poll which is in the hrtimer base of cpu being
hotplugged does not get migrated.

The function sched_clock_poll() updates the epoch_ns and epoch_cyc. If
this function present in the hrtimer base of cpu being hotplugged
doesn't migrate, there is no update on the epoch_ns and epoch_cyc.
Subseqently, when sched_clock() is called, the non updated values of
epoch_ns and epoch_cyc are obtained which looks like the timer wrapped

As seen, the time rolls over to 0 after 8792.
