Hi Gary,

While testing latest mmtom (which has this patch) ran into an issue
with sysfs files. What I noticed was, with this patch "memoryXX"
directories in /sys/devices/system/memory/ are not getting cleaned up.
Backing out the patch seems to fix the problem.

When I tried to remove 64 blocks of memory, empty directories are
stayed around. (look at memory151 - memory215). This is causing OOPS
while trying to add memory block again. I think this could be because
of the symlink added from node directory. Can you look ?

Thanks,
Badari
