I think we don't need to. The caller function is setting onlined_pages = 
0 before calling online_pages_range().
And there are no other reference to online_pages_range other than from 
online_pages().

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/mm/memory_hotplug.c?h=v5.0-rc1#n845

int __ref online_pages(unsigned long pfn, unsigned long nr_pages, int 
online_type)
{
         unsigned long flags;
         unsigned long onlined_pages = 0;

Arun
