PPC64 onlines all memory directly from the kernel, and not triggered by
user space (I think that's ugly and not desired, but it is what it is
and I am not going to touch that).

See
arch/powerpc/platforms/pseries/hotplug-memory.c:dlpar_change_lmb_state().

Best I can do here is to also always online all memory.

What are your suggestions?
