[PATCH Bug fix 2/5] memory-hotplug: export the function try_offline_node()

From: Wen Congyang <wency at cn.fujitsu.com>

The node will be offlined when all memory/cpu on the node
have been hotremoved. So we need the function try_offline_node()
in cpu-hotplug path.

If the memory-hotplug is disabled, and cpu-hotplug is enabled
1. no memory no the node
   we don't online the node, and cpu's node is the nearest node.
2. the node contains some memory
   the node has been onlined, and cpu's node is still needed
   to migrate the sleep task on the cpu to the same node.
So we do nothing in try_offline_node() in this case.
