Memory hot remove uses get_nid_for_pfn() while tearing down linked sysfs
entries between memory block and node. It first checks pfn validity with
pfn_valid_within() before fetching nid. With CONFIG_HOLES_IN_ZONE config
(arm64 has this enabled) pfn_valid_within() calls pfn_valid().

pfn_valid() is an arch implementation on arm64 (CONFIG_HAVE_ARCH_PFN_VALID)
which scans all mapped memblock regions with memblock_is_map_memory(). This
creates a problem in memory hot remove path which has already removed given
memory range from memory block with memblock_[remove|free] before arriving
at unregister_mem_sect_under_nodes(). Hence get_nid_for_pfn() returns -1
skipping subsequent sysfs_remove_link() calls leaving node <-> memory block
sysfs entries as is. Subsequent memory add operation hits BUG_ON() because
of existing sysfs entries.

Re-ordering memblock_[free|remove]() with arch_remove_memory() solves the
problem on arm64 as pfn_valid() behaves correctly and returns positive
as memblock for the address range still exists. arch_remove_memory()
removes applicable memory sections from zone with __remove_pages() and
tears down kernel linear mapping. Removing memblock regions afterwards
is safe because there is no other memblock (bootmem) allocator user that
late. So nobody is going to allocate from the removed range just to blow
up later. Also nobody should be using the bootmem allocated range else
we wouldn't allow to remove it. So reordering is indeed safe.
