Yes they are showing correct values.

Previous value of cat /proc/zoneinfo,

Node 0, zone   Normal
   pages free     65492
         min      300
         low      375
         high     450
         spanned  65536
         present  65536
         managed  65536

Value after hotadd,

Node 0, zone   Normal
   pages free     129970
         min      518
         low      649
         high     780
         spanned  983040
         present  131072
         managed  131072

I added prints in online_pages_range function.
It will be called once per online of a section and the arg value is 
always set to 0 while entering online_pages_range.

/sys/devices/system/memory # echo online > memory16/state
[   52.956558] online_pages_range start_pfn = 100000 nr_pages = 65536 
arg = 0
[   52.964104] Built 1 zonelists, mobility grouping on.  Total pages: 
187367
[   52.964828] Policy zone: Normal

But still I'll change to += to match with the previous code.

Arun
