While this is theoretically possible it is highly unlikely to happen.
Non movable memory just takes one kernel allocation to prevent any
hotremove operation to finish. I have to say I was not aware of the
hotplug callback. It all seems rather suspicious. I will have a look.

Anyway something worth having covered "just in case". Thanks for
pointing it out.

Please create a helper rather than two copies of the same. Thanks!
