There are several things I'd fix/amend but it's nothing that couldn't
be done on top as bugfixes (I'll comment later on specific issues).
However as a whole from ACPI and memory hotplug POV series looks more

I've asked Eric to test migration (I'm quite not sure about that part),
(CCed David)so on condition it works:
