4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior <bigeasy@linutronix.de>

commit 40da1b11f01e43aad1aa6cea64681b6125e8a2a7 upstream.

If a custom CPU target is specified and that one is not available _or_
can't be interrupted then the code returns to userland without dropping a
lock as notices by lockdep:

|echo 133 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu7/hotplug/target
| ================================================
| [ BUG: lock held when returning to user space! ]
| ------------------------------------------------
| bash/503 is leaving the kernel with locks still held!
| 1 lock held by bash/503:
|  #0:  (device_hotplug_lock){+.+...}, at: [<ffffffff815b5650>] lock_device_hotplug_sysfs+0x10/0x40

So release the lock then.
