Reviewed and tested.
Akinobu's changes are necessary as well.
Test was ok.

Attached is a new patch with a "combined changelog".
Patch is against v2.6.24-rc2-247-g6e800af.

x86: don't call mce_create_device on CPU_UP_PREPARE

Fix regression introduced with d435d862baca3e25e5eec236762a43251b1e7ffc
("cpu hotplug: mce: fix cpu hotplug error handling").

A CPU which was not brought up during boot (using maxcpus and additional_cpus
parameters) couldn't be onlined anymore. For such a CPU it seemed that MCE
was not supported during CPU_UP_PREPARE-time which caused mce_cpu_callback
to return NOTIFY_BAD to notifier_call_chain.
To fix this we:

 - call mce_create_device for CPU_ONLINE event (instead of CPU_UP_PREPARE),
 - avoid mce_remove_device() for the CPU that is not correctly initialized
   by mce_create_device() failure,
 - make mce_cpu_callback always return NOTIFY_OK for CPU_ONLINE event.
   Because CPU_ONLINE callback return value is always ignored.
