    Stupid question: do you even want to allow offlining of CPUs while the
    storm is raging? IOW, wouldn't it be better to disallow hotplug when the
    storm happens so that all online CPUs, which is all CPUs on the system,
    can work out the storm conditions faster so that the system gets back to
    normal faster...
