It does.

Yes, in general offlinining on hugetlb pages was already working, but we did not
allow to offline 1GB-hugetlb pages on x86_64.
I removed that limitation with
("commit: 10eeadf3045c mm,memory_hotplug: unlock 1GB-hugetlb on x86_64") , so now
offlining on hugetlb pages should be fully operative.

Instead of removing it, I would rather make it consistent with the present.
E.g:

- Move page handling from memory-hotremove to offline stage
- Enable a way to allocate vmemmap pages from hot-added memory
etc.
