Short term the regression should be fixed. It is already v4.16-rc6, we
have little time left.


Longer term, yeah, I agree. Kernel's notion of possible CPU count
should be realistic.

I did a patch for that, Artem, could you help me to test it.

 bool acpi_duplicate_processor_id(int proc_id)

I agree.

Moreover, there are not too many systems where physical CPU hotplug
actually works in practice AFAICS, so IMO we should default to "no
physical CPU hotplug" and only change that default in special cases
(which may be hard to figure out, but that's a different matter).

Yes, I think so.

What platform firmware tells us may be completely off.


Sorry, I am not sure what you mean :-) . Did you mean no platform
firmware can tell us whether physcial CPU hotplug is supported or not?

My colleagues also told to me that there is no way in OS to know whether
it is supported or not.
