Thank you for finding and fixing the problem.
I added two fixes to your patch:

- Avoid mce_remove_device() for the CPU that is not correctly initialized
  by mce_create_device() failure.

- make CPU_ONLINE callback always return NOTIFY_OK.
  Because CPU_ONLINE callback return value is always ignored.
