The only downsides I see to Ken's suggestion are:

1) Will need extra hooks for hot plug cpu to start/stop new timer
when cpus are added/removed.  Some work is presumably needed here
anyway ... when a cpu is removed it's quicklist ought to be drained.

2) Opens a new question of whether 1 second is the right interval.
That may be a long time to wait for memory to be freed up.
