You're referring to how unregister_mem_sect_under_nodes() should be 
handled, right?  register_mem_sect_under_node() already looks supported by 
your patch.

Since the unregister function includes a plural "nodes," I assume that 
it's possible for hotplug to register a memory section to more than one 
node.  That's probably lacking on x86 currently, however, because we lack 
node hotplug.

I'd suggest a similiar iteration through pfn's that the register function 
does checking for multiple nodes and then removing the link from all 
applicable node_devices kobj when unregistering.

Maybe one of the s390 maintainers will test that?
