The zone is empty after remove these two memory blocks, while we still think
it is defined in range [1310720, 1376256]. This is what I want to point.

I had a patch which fix the behavior, which means we can make sure the zone is
empty after remove these two memory blocks. As you mentioned in the reply,
http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-mm/msg130230.html, I thought you would have
this fixed in this cycle. While it looks we will still have this behavior in
this cycle and looks no intend to fix this?
