Right, the original problem that Lee reported doesn't appear to be caused
by hotplug.

We don't need additional non-default mempolicy support for MEM_ONLINE.
It would be inappropriate to store the user nodemask and then hot-add new

of its proximity. It's better left to userspace to update existing
mempolicies to use the newly added memory.
