Subject[PATCH] memory-hotplug: add sysfs zone_index attribute
Currently memory-hotplug has two limits:
1. If the memory block is in ZONE_NORMAL, you can change it to
ZONE_MOVABLE, but this memory block must be adjacent to ZONE_MOVABLE.
2. If the memory block is in ZONE_MOVABLE, you can change it to
ZONE_NORMAL, but this memory block must be adjacent to ZONE_NORMAL.

Without this patch, we don't know which zone a memory block is in.
So we don't know which memory block is adjacent to ZONE_MOVABLE or
ZONE_NORMAL.

On the other hand, with this patch, we can easy to know newly added
memory is added as ZONE_NORMAL (for powerpc, ZONE_DMA, for x86_32,
ZONE_HIGHMEM).

Updated the related Documentation.
