Especially in the scheduler area (schedule.c, cpupool.c) there is a
rather complex handling involved when doing suspend and resume.

This can be simplified a lot by not performing a complete cpu down and
up cycle for the non-boot cpus, but keeping the pure software related
state and freeing it only in case a cpu didn't come up again during

In summary not only the complexity can be reduced, but the failure
tolerance will be even better with this series: With a dedicated hook
for failing cpus when resuming it is now possible to survive e.g. a
cpupool being left without any cpu after resume by moving its domains
to cpupool0.

Juergen Gross (6):
  xen/sched: call cpu_disable_scheduler() via cpu notifier
  xen: add helper for calling notifier_call_chain() to common/cpu.c
  xen: add new cpu notifier action CPU_RESUME_FAILED
  xen: don't free percpu areas during suspend
  xen/cpupool: simplify suspend/resume handling
  xen/sched: don't disable scheduler on cpus during suspend
