for my 1024g system when memory hotadd is enabled in kernel config:
1. current linus tree + tip tree: memory_dev_init will take about 100s.
2. current linus tree + tip tree + your tree - Peterz patch:
a. on fedora 14 gcc: will cost about 4s: like old times
b. on opensuse 11.3 gcc: will cost about 10s.

Thanks
