some systems that have disable cpus entries because same
  BIOS will support 2 sockets and 4 sockets and more at
  same time, BIOS just leave some disable entries, but
  those system do not support cpu hotplug. we don't need
  treat disabled_cpus as hotplug cpus.
so we can make nr_cpu_ids smaller and save more space
  (pcpu data allocations), and could make some systems run
  with logical flat instead of physical flat apic mode
