I should drop that completely. We should not hit that condition at all. 
I will send a final patch once I go through the full patch series making 
sure we are not breaking any ppc64 details.

Wondering why we did the below

#if defined(ARCH_SUBSECTION_SHIFT)
#define SUBSECTION_SHIFT (ARCH_SUBSECTION_SHIFT)
#elif defined(PMD_SHIFT)
#define SUBSECTION_SHIFT (PMD_SHIFT)
#else
/*
  * Memory hotplug enabled platforms avoid this default because they
  * either define ARCH_SUBSECTION_SHIFT, or PMD_SHIFT is a constant, but
  * this is kept as a backstop to allow compilation on
  * !ARCH_ENABLE_MEMORY_HOTPLUG archs.
  */
#define SUBSECTION_SHIFT 21
#endif

why not

#if defined(ARCH_SUBSECTION_SHIFT)
#define SUBSECTION_SHIFT (ARCH_SUBSECTION_SHIFT)
#else
#define SUBSECTION_SHIFT  SECTION_SHIFT
#endif

ie, if SUBSECTION is not supported by arch we have one sub-section per 
section?
