Hello David,

I am almost done with the next version with respect to memory hot-remove i.e
arch_remove_memory(). But most of the time was spent addressing concerns with
respect to how memory hot remove is going to impact existing arm64 and generic
code which can concurrently walk or modify init_mm page table. I should be
sending out V3 this week or early next week.
