Instead of freeing percpu areas during suspend and allocating them
again when resuming keep them. Only free an area in case a cpu didn't
come up again when resuming.

It should be noted that there is a potential change in behaviour as
the percpu areas are no longer zeroed out during suspend/resume. While
I have checked the called cpu notifier hooks to cope with that there
might be some well hidden dependency on the previous behaviour. OTOH
a component not registering itself for cpu down/up and expecting to
see a zeroed percpu variable after suspend/resume is kind of broken
already. And the opposite case, where a component is not registered
to be called for cpu down/up and is not expecting a percpu variable
suddenly to be zero due to suspend/resume is much more probable,
especially as the suspend/resume functionality seems not to be tested
that often.
