SubjectRe: [PATCH v1 2/5] mm/memory_hotplug: enforce section alignment when onlining/offlining
Date
Hi David,

I am not sure this is needed, because we already have a stricter checker:

check_hotplug_memory_range()

You could call it from online_pages(), if you think there is a reason to
do it, but other than that it is done from add_memory_resource() and
from remove_memory().

Thank you,
Pavel
