Not really a problem since this is not the only issue that requires a
reboot.

You have to reboot most of the time if you change applications on a HPC
machine. After all you cannot reliably change the available set of huge
pages after boot. So you have to reboot anyways if you want some cores to
do different things.

And then the machines performance goes down over time due to
memory fragmentation. So you better reboot frequently.

Thus reboot, reboot, reboot. We have become like Windows 95 ...
