Like I mentioned, nothing. When KAME did the hotplug memory
remove, he kept this remove_memory() arch-specific - so
each arch can provide its own, if it needs to something
special. So far, there is no need for arch-specific 
remove_memory(). If other archs (x86-64 and others)
agree we can merge this into arch neutral code.

I have to provide this for ppc64 to plug into general
frame work.
