mm/hotplug: remove unnecessary BUG_ON in __offline_pages()



I think we can remove "BUG_ON(start_pfn >= end_pfn)" in __offline_pages(),
because in memory_block_action() "nr_pages = PAGES_PER_SECTION * sections_per_block"
is always greater than 0.

memory_block_action()
	offline_pages()
		__offline_pages()
			BUG_ON(start_pfn >= end_pfn)

In v2.6.32, If info->length==0, this way may hit this BUG_ON().
acpi_memory_disable_device()
	remove_memory(info->start_addr, info->length)
			offline_pages()

A later Fujitsu patch renamed this function and the BUG_ON() is
unnecessary.
