It's also not very pretty in dmesg.

Before:

pseries-hotplug-mem: Memory hot-add failed, removing any added LMBs
dlpar: Could not handle DLPAR request "memory add count 10"

After:

pseries-hotplug-mem: Memory hot-remove failed, adding LMB's back
dlpar: Could not handle DLPAR request "memory remove count 10"



It looks like set_migratetype_isolate() and start_isolate_page_range()
can be told not to report those warnings, but we're just calling
device_offline() which doesn't let us specify that.

cheers
