There are multiple components involved here. This includes user space,
cpusets and kernel support for various forms of migrating pages.

The policy layer stuff is already Kconfigurable via CONFIG_NUMA.

I think the lower layer in vmscan.c could be always included since its
currently small and its just a variation on swap. However, if we add the
rest of the features contained in the hot plug then the code size becomes
significant and we may want to have a config variable for that.
