Subject: [PATCH 3/4] Eliminate lock_cpu_hotplug in kernel/sched.c

Eliminate lock_cpu_hotplug from kernel/sched.c and use sched_hotcpu_mutex
instead to postpone a hotplug event. 

In the migration_call hotcpu callback function, take sched_hotcpu_mutex
while handling the event CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE and release it while handling
CPU_LOCK_RELEASE event.
