In v2 it uses CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU, but I think adding another config is
more flexible. Maybe there are some architecture that supports
HOTPLUG_CPU but doesn't want to do full cpu hotplug before reboot.
(Eg. doing cpu hotplug would make reboot process slower.)

Comparing to freeze_secondary_cpus(), I think it's not necessary to
check pm_wakeup_pending() before _cpu_down() here. Thus it doesn't
need to depend on CONFIG_PM_SLEEP_SMP.
Also I think it could continue to offline other CPUs even one fails,
while freeze_secondary_cpus() would stop once it fails on offlining
one CPU.
Based on these differences, I didn't use freeze_secondary_cpus() here.
As for merging the common part, it might need additional flags to
handle the difference, which might lower the readability.
