This patchset is sent for comment to add memory hotplug support for ARM64
based platforms.  It follows hotplug code added for other architectures
in the linux kernel.

I tried testing the memory hotplug feature following documentation from
Documentation/memory-hotplug.txt.  I don't think it is working as expected
- see below:

To add memory to the system I did the following:
echo 0x400000000 > /sys/devices/system/memory/probe

The memory is displayed as system ram:
cat /proc/iomem:
74000000-77ffffff : System RAM
  74080000-748dffff : Kernel code
  74950000-749d2fff : Kernel data
400000000-43fffffff : System RAM

But does not seem to be added to the kernel memory.
/proc/meminfo did not change.

What else needs to be done so the memory is added to the kernel memory
pool for normal allocation?
