    The interaction of cpusets and hotplug should be in good shape. Look
    in kernel/cpuset.c for CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU and CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG,
    and you will see the two routines to call for cpu and memory hotplug
    events, cpuset_handle_cpuhp() and cpuset_track_online_nodes().

    The problem area is the interaction of dynamic sched domains and
    cpusets with hot plug events.
