The taking CPUs away part is not functioning yet in the current
patchset. It is certainly doable. I just need more time to work on that.

The current patchset is fine if partition is restricted to the first
level children as CPU online/offline is properly handled by the
patchset. It is in the non-root level that taking CPUs away from a
partition can be problematic.
