Hi TJ,

This change makes the usage of cpuset_hotplug_workfn() from cpu
hotplug path synchronous. For memory hotplug it still remains
asynchronous.

Memory migration happening from cpuset_hotplug_workfn() is
already asynchronous by queuing cpuset_migrate_mm_workfn() in
cpuset_migrate_mm_wq.

cpuset_hotplug_workfn()
cpuset_hotplug_workfn(()
cpuset_migrate_mm()
queue_work(cpuset_migrate_mm_wq)

It seems that memory migration latency might not have
impact with this change.

Please let me know if you meant something else by cpuset
migration taking time when memory migration is turned on.


Thanks
