Subject[PATCH 1/6] arm64/mm: Enable sysfs based memory hot add interface
Sysfs memory probe interface (/sys/devices/system/memory/probe) can accept
starting physical address of an entire memory block to be hot added into
the kernel. This is in addition to the existing ACPI based interface. This
just enables it with the required config CONFIG_ARCH_MEMORY_PROBE.
