Hi,

As offline_pages() is called from a different location for ppc (and I
understand why but don't consider this clean) and I used both functions
in a prototype, believing they would work with pageblock_nr_pages, I
really think that we should at least drop the misleading check from
offline_pages() and better also add checks for check_hotplug_memory_range().

Thanks for having a look Pavel!
