acpi: fix "buggy BIOS check" when CPUs are hot removed
Alok Kataria [Wed, 9 Apr 2008 00:41:56 +0000 (17:41 -0700)]
Fixes a BUG in ACPI hotplugging.

processor_device_array[pr->id] needs to be set to NULL when removing a CPU.
Else the "buggy BIOS check" in acpi_processor_start mistakenly fires when a
CPU is removed from the system and then later re-added.
