Subject: [PATCH 3.16 43/86] x86/speculation: Rework SMT state change

3.16.68-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@...utronix.de>

commit a74cfffb03b73d41e08f84c2e5c87dec0ce3db9f upstream.

arch_smt_update() is only called when the sysfs SMT control knob is
changed. This means that when SMT is enabled in the sysfs control knob the
system is considered to have SMT active even if all siblings are offline.

To allow finegrained control of the speculation mitigations, the actual SMT
state is more interesting than the fact that siblings could be enabled.

Rework the code, so arch_smt_update() is invoked from each individual CPU
hotplug function, and simplify the update function while at it.
