Yes.

But can't we make a much more simple patch ?

Why should we play with set_cpus_allowed() at all? We can just migrate
the caller of _cpu_down() before other tasks, right after take_cpu_down()
does __cpu_disable()->remove_cpu_from_maps().

No?

Oleg.

Uncompiled, and we need to export move_task_off_dead_cpu(). Just to
explain what I mean.
