Hi Igor,

Thanks for feedback. Yes the current implementation actually reports CPU hot-
add as BIOS bug. I think I can report BIOS bug for hot-removal too. And
currently I actually used BUG() for the hot-removal case. For hot-add I didn't
use BUG() but rejected the new CPU as the latter is more conservative.

Hi Rafael,

I am not sure I got what you mean by "This will affect initialization, not just
hotplug AFAICS", could you elaborate a little bit? Thanks.
