Subject: [PATCH] mm, add_memory_resource: hold device_hotplug lock over
 mem_hotplug_{begin, done}

With 4.10.0-10265-gc4f3f22 the following warning is triggered on s390:

The following patch fixes that for me:

mm, add_memory_resource: hold device_hotplug lock over mem_hotplug_{begin, done}

With commit 3fc219241 ("mm: validate device_hotplug is held for memory hotplug")
a lock assertion was added to mem_hotplug_begin() which led to a warning
when add_memory() is called. Fix this by acquiring device_hotplug_lock in
add_memory_resource().
