[Xen-devel] [PATCH] xen/x86: fix cpu hotplug

Commit dc6416f1d711eb4c1726e845d653235dcaae12e1 ("xen/x86: Call
cpu_startup_entry(CPUHP_AP_ONLINE_IDLE) from xen_play_dead()")
introduced an error leading to a stack overflow of the idle task when
a cpu was brought offline/online many times: by calling
cpu_startup_entry() instead of returning at the end of xen_play_dead()
do_idle() would be entered again and again.

Don't use cpu_startup_entry(), but cpuhp_online_idle() instead allowing
to return from xen_play_dead().

Cc: <stable@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> # 4.12

For 4.11 the patch has to be backported.
