Absolutely. Why do we need wrappers when we can offline entire nodes
with 6-line shell scripts? The CPU hotplug interfaces are here today
and the memory stuff will be here soon. Perhaps you could help with the
for i in $NODEDIR/cpu* $NODEDIR/memory*; do

We don't currently export bus to node mappings in sysfs, but we have
them in the kernel, so that won't be too hard to export as well.
