Subject: [PATCH v3 1/6] mm/memory-hotplug: fix lowmem count overflow when offline pages 

Changelog:
 v1 -> v2:
	* show number of HighTotal before hotremove 
	* remove CONFIG_HIGHMEM
	* cc stable kernels
	* add Michal reviewed-by

Logic memory-remove code fails to correctly account the Total High Memory 
when a memory block which contains High Memory is offlined as shown in the
example below. The following patch fixes it.

Stable for 2.6.24+.

Before logic memory remove:

MemTotal:        7603740 kB
MemFree:         6329612 kB

Inactive(file):   296272 kB
Unevictable:           0 kB
Mlocked:               0 kB
HighTotal:       7294672 kB
HighFree:        5704696 kB
LowTotal:         309068 kB
LowFree:          624916 kB

After logic memory remove:

MemTotal:        7079452 kB
MemFree:         5805976 kB
Buffers:           94372 kB
