How can we see concurent reinit_completion() and complete()? Obvioulsy,
we are not onlining new memory in kernel and hv_mem_hot_add() calls are
serialized, we're waiting up to 5*HZ for the added block to come online
before proceeding to the next one. Or do you mean we actually hit this
5*HZ timeout, proceeded to the next block and immediately after
reinit_completion() we saw complete() for the previously added block?
This is tolerable indeed, we're making forward progress (and this all is
'best effort' anyway).
