memory hotplug: release memory regions in PAGES_PER_SECTION chunks
During hotplug memory remove, memory regions should be released on a PAGES_PER_SECTION size chunks. This mirrors the code in add_memory where resources are requested on a PAGES_PER_SECTION size. Attempting to release the entire memory region fails because there is not a single resource for the total number of pages being removed. Instead the resources for the pages are split in PAGES_PER_SECTION size chunks as requested during memory add.
