IMHO, To hot-remove memory, memory attribute should be divided
into Hotpluggable and no-Hotpluggable, and each attribute memory
should be allocated each unit(ex. node).

(I posted the following mail 2 month ago.)

Now, I'm making a Memory hot-ADD trial patch, but it don't work yet.
(Kernel panic when memory enable command is executed.)
After this patch will work, I will post it again.

Thanks.
