Thanks for looking into this! Just a heads-up that -mm and -next contain
some changes to memory hotplug code, whereby new pageblocks start out in
MIGRATE_ISOLATE when onlining, until we're done with the heavy lifting.
Might require some tweaks, similar to when isolating pageblocks.

Will dive into this in the following days. What's you're general
perception of performance aspects?
