You are right, the strong requirement is for hotplug case only, but if
PCP disable/enable functionality is properly implemented, and we are
still draining the lists in alloc_contig_range case, I do not see a
reason not to disable/enable PCP during CMA as well just to reduce
number of spurious errors.
