while looking at the MHD code, we had decided to "reserve" the blocks in
the bitmap in the call to `qmp_cxl_process_dynamic_capacity` in order to
prevent a potential double-allocation (basically we need to sanity check
that two hosts aren't reserving the region PRIOR to the host being

I did not see any checks in the `qmp_cxl_process_dynamic_capacity` path
to prevent pending extents from being double-allocated.  Is this an
explicit choice?

I can see, for example, why you may want to allow the following in the
pending list: [Add X, Remove X, Add X].  I just want to know if this is
intentional or not. If not, you may consider adding a pending check
during the sanity check phase of `qmp_cxl_process_dynamic_capacity`
