remove_memory() has been arch-specific since there was no piece of unplug
code. And I didn't merge it to be generic when I implemented ia64 ver.

Hmm...I have no objection to merge them. But let's see how memory hotremove
for ppc64 works for a while. We can merge them later.

I'm glad to have new testers :)
