This just sounds like a whole lot of extra work to get a feature that
already exists. Also, features like these seem to just get tested when the
next enterprise distro is released, so they're broken for long stretches
of time in mainline.

There's a bunch of problems like the NUMA ones, which would by far be
easiest to solve by just doing another reboot or kexec, wouldn't they?
