Subject[PATCH v2] mm/hotplug: Verify hotplug memory range
Date
add_memory() and remove_memory() can only handle a memory range aligned
with section. There are problems when an unaligned range is added and
then deleted as follows:

- add_memory() with an unaligned range succeeds, but __add_pages()
called from add_memory() adds a whole section of pages even though
a given memory range is less than the section size.
- remove_memory() to the added unaligned range hits BUG_ON() in
__remove_pages().

This patch changes add_memory() and remove_memory() to check if a given
memory range is aligned with section at the beginning. As the result,
add_memory() fails with -EINVAL when a given range is unaligned, and
does not add such memory range. This prevents remove_memory() to be
called with an unaligned range as well. Note that remove_memory() has
to use BUG_ON() since this function cannot fail.
