powerpc/smp: do not decrement idle task preempt count in CPU offline
With PREEMPT_COUNT=y, when a CPU is offlined and then onlined again, we
BUG: scheduling while atomic: swapper/1/0/0x00000000

This is because powerpc's arch_cpu_idle_dead() decrements the idle task's
preempt count, for reasons explained in commit a7c2bb8279d2 ("powerpc:
Re-enable preemption before cpu_die()"), specifically "start_secondary()
expects a preempt_count() of 0."
However, since commit 2c669ef6979c ("powerpc/preempt: Don't touch the idle
task's preempt_count during hotplug") and commit f1a0a376ca0c ("sched/core:
Initialize the idle task with preemption disabled"), that justification no
The idle task isn't supposed to re-enable preemption, so remove the
vestigial preempt_enable() from the CPU offline path.
Tested with pseries and powernv in qemu, and pseries on PowerVM.
