[PATCH] memory hotplug: run lru_add_drain_all() on each cpu

offline_pages() calls lru_add_drain_all() followed by drain_all_pages().
While drain_all_pages() works on each cpu, lru_add_drain_all() only runs
on the current cpu for architectures w/o CONFIG_NUMA. This let us run
into the BUG_ON(!PageBuddy(page)) in __offline_isolated_pages() during
memory hotplug stress test on s390. The page in question was still on the
pcp list, because of a race with lru_add_drain_all() and drain_all_pages()
on different cpus.

This is fixed with this patch by adding CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE to the
lru_add_drain_all() #ifdef, to let it run on each cpu.
