TJ, I _think_ it was commit:

deb7aa308ea2 ("cpuset: reorganize CPU / memory hotplug handling")

That wrecked things, but there's been so much changes in this area it is
really hard to tell. Note how before that commit it would
unconditionally rebuild the domains, and you 'optimized' that ;-)

That commit also introduced the work to do the async rebuild and failed
to do that flush on resume.

In any case, I think we should put a fixes tag on this commit such that
it gets picked up into stable kernels. Not sure anybody will try and
backport it into 4 year old kernels, but who knows.
