Thanks for the info.

if __add_pages() fails, then arch_add_memory() fails and
arch_remove_memory() will not be called in the context of this series.
Only if it succeeded.

Yes, that part is next on my list. It works but is ugly. The memory
removal process should not care about zones at all.
Slowly moving into the right direction :)
