This is outside the scope of node hotplug emulation, it needs to be built
on top of whatever the kernel implements.

I like name, but it requires that you know how many nodes that system
already has. In other words, numa=possible=4 allows you to specify that 4
additional nodes will be possible, but initially offline, for this or
other purposes. numa=max=4 would be no-op if the system actually had 4
nodes.

I chose numa=possible over numa=additional because it is more clearly tied
to node_possible_map, which is the only thing it modifies.
