The changelog could see some improvements I believe. (Half) stating
broken status of multinode memblock is not really useful without a wider
context so I would simply remove it. More to the point, it would be much
better to actually describe the actual problem and the user visible
effect.

"
d0dc12e86b31 ("mm/memory_hotplug: optimize memory hotplug") has started
using find_memory_block to get a nodeid for the beginnig of the onlined
pfn range. The commit has missed that the memblock contains a reference
counted object and a missing put_device will leak the kobject behind
which ADD THE USER VISIBLE EFFECT HERE.
