After digging through some of this code I'm a bit concerned about all the kernel
device tree manipulation around memory DLPAR both with the assoc-lookup-array
prop update and post dynamic-memory prop updating. We build a drmem_info array
of the LMBs from the device-tree at boot. I don't really understand why we are
manipulating the device tree property every time we add/remove an LMB. Not sure
the reasoning was to write back in particular the aa_index and flags for each
LMB into the device tree when we already have them in the drmem_info array. On
the other hand the assoc-lookup-array I suppose would need to have an in kernel
representation to avoid updating the device tree property every time.

Changes to the device tree should be things reported to the system from the
hypervisor through the proper interfaces, and as a result any code that cares
can register an of_reconfig_notifier to respond to device tree updates. The
memory dlpar code seems to be needlessly manipulating the device-tree which
leads to the problem here where a notifier callback is now duplicating work.

Just my two cents FWIW.
