    Subject[RFC 0/3] memory-hotplug: handle page race between allocation and isolation
    Memory hotplug has a subtle race problem so this patchset fixes the problem
    (Look at [3/3] for detail and please confirm the problem before review
    other patches in this series.)

    [1/3] is just clean up and help for [2/3].
    [2/3] keeps the migratetype information to freed page's index field
    and [3/3] uses the information.
    [3/3] fixes the race problem with [2/3]'s information.

    After applying [2/3], migratetype argument in __free_one_page
    and free_one_page is redundant so we can remove it but I decide
    to not touch them because it increases code size about 50 byte.

    Minchan Kim (3):
    mm: use get_page_migratetype instead of page_private
    mm: remain migratetype in freed page
    memory-hotplug: bug fix race between isolation and allocation
