Hi Gu,

My patch is just set size to 0 when hotadd a node(old or new). I know your worry,
but I think it is not necessary.

When we calculate the size, it uses "arch_zone_lowest_possible_pfn[]" and "memblock",
and they are both from boot time. If we hotadd a new node, the calculated size is
0 too. When add momery, __add_zone() will grow the size and start.
