How have you tested this patch?

Also this is an old code and quite convoluted but does it still work as
inteded? I mean, I do not see any cpu offline callback to reduce the
cpu mask as all the CPUs for the given node go offline? Wouldn't the
scheduler simply go and fallback to no affinity if that happens?
In other words what is the value of kswapd_cpu_online in the first
place?
