[Xen-devel] [PATCH 3/8] allow cpu_down() to be called earlier

The function's use of the stop-machine logic has so far prevented its
use ahead of the processing of the "ordinary" initcalls. Since at this
early time we're in a controlled environment anyway, there's no need for
such a heavy tool. Additionally this ought to have less of a performance
impact especially on large systems, compared to the alternative of
making stop-machine functionality available earlier.
