    CPU online file permission
    Is there a reason why the "online" file in the subdirectories for the CPUs
    in /sys/devices/system isn't world-readable?  I cannot imagine it to be
    security relevant especially now that a getcpu() syscall can be used to
    determine what CPUa thread runs on.
    The file is useful to correctly implement the sysconf() function to return
    the number of online CPUs.  In the presence of hotplug we currently cannot
    provide this information.  The patch below should to it.
