hotplug memory remove: generic __remove_pages() support
Generic helper function to remove section mappings and sysfs entries for the section of the memory we are removing. offline_pages() correctly adjusted zone and marked the pages reserved. TODO: Yasunori Goto is working on patches to free up allocations from bootmem.
