Subject[PATCH V4] mm: Extend memory hotplug API to allow memory hotplug in virtual machines
This patch applies to Linus' git tree, git commit 98b98d316349e9a028e632629fe813d07fa5afdd
(Merge branch 'drm-core-next' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/airlied/drm-2.6)
with a few prerequisite patches available at https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/5/2/296
and https://lkml.org/lkml/2011/5/17/408 (all prerequisite patches were included in -mm tree).

This patch contains online_page_callback and apropriate functions for
registering/unregistering online page callbacks. It allows to do some
machine specific tasks during online page stage which is required
to implement memory hotplug in virtual machines. Currently this patch
is required by latest memory hotplug support for Xen balloon driver
patch which will be posted soon.

Additionally, originial online_page() function was splited into
following functions doing "atomic" operations:
- __online_page_set_limits() - set new limits for memory management code,
- __online_page_increment_counters() - increment totalram_pages and totalhigh_pages,
- __online_page_free() - free page to allocator.

It was done to:
- not duplicate existing code,
- ease hotplug code devolpment by usage of well defined interface,
- avoid stupid bugs which are unavoidable when the same code
(by design) is developed in many places.
