Hmm yes - this looks completely broken.

cpupool_cpu_remove() only has a single caller which is from cpu_down(), and will unconditionally fail for cpus outside of the default pool.

It is not obvious at all how this is supposed to work, and the comment beside cpupool_cpu_remove() doesn't help.

Can you try the following (only compile tested) patch, which looks plausibly like it might DTRT.  The for_each_cpupool() is a little nastly but there appears to be no cpu_to_cpupool mapping available.
