Your concern is right. Overflow bug may occur in the future.
So I changed type of "i" and "sections_to_remove" to "unsigned long".
Please merge it into your tree instead of previous patch.

__remove_pages() also has same concern. So I'll fix it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
When our x86 box calls __remove_pages(), release_mem_region() shows
many warnings. And x86 box cannot unregister iomem_resource.

"Trying to free nonexistent resource <XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX-YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY>"

release_mem_region() has been changed as called in each PAGES_PER_SECTION
chunk since applying a patch(de7f0cba96786c). Because powerpc registers
iomem_resource in each PAGES_PER_SECTION chunk. But when I hot add memory
on x86 box, iomem_resource is register in each _CRS not PAGES_PER_SECTION
chunk. So x86 box unregisters iomem_resource.

The patch fixes the problem.
