Subject[PATCH 3/6] ksm: change the KSM_REMOVE_MEMORY_REGION ioctl.
Date
This patch change the KSM_REMOVE_MEMORY_REGION ioctl to be specific per
memory region (instead of flushing all the registred memory regions inside
the file descriptor like it happen now)

The previoes api was:
user register memory regions using KSM_REGISTER_MEMORY_REGION inside the fd,
and then when he wanted to remove just one memory region, he had to remove them
all using KSM_REMOVE_MEMORY_REGION.

This patch change this beahivor by chaning the KSM_REMOVE_MEMORY_REGION
ioctl to recive another paramter that it is the begining of the virtual
address that is wanted to be removed.

(user can still remove all the memory regions all at once, by just closing
the file descriptor)
