Re: [PATCH] mm/nobootmem: Fix unused variable

From: Robin Holt

If the definition of the
get_allocated_memblock_reserved_regions_info() function when
CONFIG_ARCH_DISCARD_MEMBLOCK simply returns 0, the compiler will see
that size is defined, the optimizer will see that it is always 0 and
that the if(0) is always false. The net result will be no code will
be produced and the function will be less cluttered.
