what was this comment referring to:

    /* intentionally ignoring frozen here */

After you move the cmci_rediscover() call, it is now in a place where we are
no longer ignoring frozen (i.e. the old placement did the rediscover even if the
CPU_TASKS_FROZEN bit was set - with the new placement we will skip rediscovery.

So we were working around some interaction between cpu hotplug and frozen.
Do we no longer need to do that?
