Hi Dave,

No, I do not. I even had mixed feelings myself when suggesting this as well.
As you said, it would be more optimum, but it feels kinda wrong placing the
call directly in hotplug code.

So all in all, I think your approach is more neat and clean, and more than
enough for now.

I yet have to dive in the details, but I got one more question.
Can we have CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG && !CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU scenarios?
I wonder because I do not see a stub function in case CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU
is not enabled, so I guess we cannot.

I am asking this because migrate_on_reclaim_callback() is envolved
with CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG, but calls cpuhp_setup_state, and I was not
sure whether we would have some dependency here?

Thanks
