I see. As long as it's clearly noted in the patch description and as
comment && the behavior is off unless explicitly enabled, it should be
fine for now, I think. As currently implemented, the users of memory
hotplug would have to pay pretty heavy price in terms of memory
locality overhead in general and it could be that the ones missed here
might not make noticeable difference anyway.

Thanks.
