The v8 patch
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/1547032395-24582-1-git-send-email-arunks@codeaurora.org/T/#u

(which you apparently sent 7 minutes after typing the above) still has

 static int online_pages_range(unsigned long start_pfn, unsigned long nr_pages,
 			void *arg)
 {
-	unsigned long i;
 	unsigned long onlined_pages = *(unsigned long *)arg;
-	struct page *page;
 
 	if (PageReserved(pfn_to_page(start_pfn)))
-		for (i = 0; i < nr_pages; i++) {
-			page = pfn_to_page(start_pfn + i);
-			(*online_page_callback)(page);
-			onlined_pages++;
-		}
+		onlined_pages = online_pages_blocks(start_pfn, nr_pages);


Even then the code makes no sense.

static int online_pages_range(unsigned long start_pfn, unsigned long nr_pages,
			void *arg)
{
	unsigned long onlined_pages = *(unsigned long *)arg;

	if (PageReserved(pfn_to_page(start_pfn)))
		onlined_pages += online_pages_blocks(start_pfn, nr_pages);

	online_mem_sections(start_pfn, start_pfn + nr_pages);

	*(unsigned long *)arg += onlined_pages;
	return 0;
}

Either the final assignment should be

	*(unsigned long *)arg = onlined_pages;

or the initialization should be

	unsigned long onlined_pages = 0;



This is becoming a tad tiresome and I'd prefer not to have to check up
on such things.  Can we please get this right?
