[PATCH v2 1/5] drivers/base/memory: Remove unneeded check in remove_memory_block_devices

From: Oscar Salvador
Date: Tue Jun 25 2019 - 03:53:09 EST

remove_memory_block_devices() checks for the range to be aligned
to memory_block_size_bytes, which is our current memory block size,
and WARNs_ON and bails out if it is not.

This is the right to do, but we do already do that in try_remove_memory(),
where remove_memory_block_devices() gets called from, and we even are
more strict in try_remove_memory, since we directly BUG_ON in case the range
is not properly aligned.

Since remove_memory_block_devices() is only called from try_remove_memory(),
we can safely drop the check here.

To be honest, I am not sure if we should kill the system in case we cannot
remove memory.
I tend to think that WARN_ON and return and error is better.
