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...
