    No, I would just reply to the email notification you received when the
    patch went into -mm saying that the changelog should be adjusted to read
    something like

    online_pages() is only compiled for CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG_SPARSE,
    so there is no need to support CONFIG_FLATMEM code within it.

    This patch removes code that is never used.
