The rescuers migrate themselves so should be okay. I still think it
would be better to migrate back detached workers. It's a slow path
for sure but there's a big gaping hole between machine-slow and
human-slow and works can be human-slow (ie. hotplug operation not
finished in several minutes). I'll see if that's implementable w/o
adding an additional interface.
