No, I don't think so. A random CPU sent an IPI to an offline not yet
dead CPU which got lost. However before the CPU went dead it migrated
all task to another CPU and I *think* since that task was runnable it
got on the CPU soon.

no I think we are good.

We could not send the IPI. Migrating the task (instead the IPI in this
case) is probably too much since it will be done soon (at least in this
scenario). So maybe we could just remove that warning _or_ add something
to cpu.c to check the "hotplug-state < CPUHP_AP_SCHED_STARTING" and cpu_offline()
and warn only in this case.

This is what the removal would look like:
