SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH] memory-hotplug: add sysfs immovable_mem attribute

visible API patches.

The patch doesn't explain who is going to use this information and what
for. Moreover we already do have removable which tells whether the given
memblock is movable.

Finally you are pulling an ACPI specific code into a generic code which
