Subject[PATCH v4 2/4] mm/memory_hotplug: Drop mem_blk check from unregister_mem_sect_under_nodes
From: Oscar Salvador <>

Before calling to unregister_mem_sect_under_nodes(),
remove_memory_section() already checks if we got a valid memory_block.

No need to check that again in unregister_mem_sect_under_nodes().

If more functions start using unregister_mem_sect_under_nodes() in the
future, we can always place a WARN_ON to catch null mem_blk's so we can
safely back off.

For now, let us keep the check in remove_memory_section() since it is the
only function that uses it.
