How will this interact with DLPAR memory? When we dlpar memory,
ibm,configure-connector is used to fetch the new associativity details
and set drmem_lmb->aa_index correctly there. Once that is done kernel
then call drmem_update_dt() which will result in the above notifier
callback?

IIUC, the call back then will update drmem_lmb->aa_index again?
