This looks good to me except a nit and it can be improved if
that looks reasonable and only when you get a chance for
respin.

The discussion here is irrelevant to this patch itself. It seems
early_section() is coarse, which means all memory detected during
boot time won't be hotpluggable?

I think NOTIFY_BAD is returned for MEM_OFFLINE wouldn't be a
bad idea, even the core isn't handling the errno. With this,
the code can be simplified. However, it's not a big deal and
you probably evaluate and change when you need another respin:

pr_warn("Boot memory [%lx %lx] %s\n",
(action == MEM_GOING_OFFLINE) ? "offlining attempted" : "offlined",
start, end);
return NOTIFY_BAD;

Cheers,
Gavin
