[Part3 PATCH v2 4/4] mem-hotplug: Do not free LOCAL_NODE_DATA pages to buddy system in hot-remove procedure.

From: Tang Chen
Date: Thu Jun 13 2013 - 09:41:51 EST

In memory hot-remove procedure, we free pagetable pages to buddy system.
But for local pagetable pages, do not free them to buddy system because
they were skipped in offline procedure. The memory block they reside in
could have been offlined, and we won't offline it again.

v1 -> v2: Prevent freeing LOCAL_NODE_DATA pages in free_pagetable() instead
of in put_page_bootmem().
