Subject[PATCH] mm/hotplug: Remove stop_machine() from try_offline_node()
Date
lock_device_hotplug() serializes hotplug & online/offline operations.
The lock is held in common sysfs online/offline interfaces and ACPI
hotplug code paths.

try_offline_node() off-lines a node if all memory sections and cpus
are removed on the node. It is called from acpi_processor_remove()
and acpi_memory_remove_memory()->remove_memory() paths, both of which
are in the ACPI hotplug code.

try_offline_node() calls stop_machine() to stop all cpus while checking
all cpu status with the assumption that the caller is not protected from
CPU hotplug or CPU online/offline operations. However, the caller is
always serialized with lock_device_hotplug(). Also, the code needs to
be properly serialized with a lock, not by stopping all cpus at a random
place with stop_machine().

This patch removes the use of stop_machine() in try_offline_node() and
adds comments to try_offline_node() and remove_memory() that
lock_device_hotplug() is required.
