SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 0/4] optimize memory hotplug
Hi Ingo,

Thank you very much for your review. I will address spelling issues,
and will also try to split the patch #4. Regarding runtime concern
for patch #3: the extra checking is only performed when the both of
the following CONFIGs are enabled:

CONFIG_DEBUG_VM=y
CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGFLAGS=y

I do not expect either of these to be ever enabled on a production systems.

Thank you,
Pavel
