[PATCH] kernel/sys.c: call disable_nonboot_cpus in kernel_restart

Like kernel_power_off calls disable_nonboot_cpus, we may want to have
kernel_restart call disable_nonboot_cpus as well.  Doing so can help
the machines that require boot cpu be the last alive cpu during reboot
to survive with kernel restart.
