[PATCH: 015/017](RFC) Memory hotplug for new nodes v.3.(allow -EEXIST of add_memory)

From: Yasunori Goto <y-goto_at_jp.fujitsu.com>
Date: 2006-03-09 00:43:01
When acpi_memory_device_init() is called at boottime to
register struct memory acpi_memory_device, 
acpi_bus_add() are called via acpi_driver_attach().

But it also calls ops->start() function.
It is called even if the memory blocks are initialized at
early boottime. In this case add_memory() return -EEXIST, and
the memory blocks becomes INVALID state even if it is normal.


This is patch for it.
