virtio-mem wants to offline and remove a memory block once it unplugged
all subblocks (e.g., using alloc_contig_range()). Let's provide
an interface to do that from a driver. virtio-mem already supports to
offline partially unplugged memory blocks. Offlining a fully unplugged
memory block will not require to migrate any pages. All unplugged
subblocks are PageOffline() and have a reference count of 0 - so
offlining code will simply skip them.

All we need an interface to trigger the "offlining" and the removing in a
single operation - to make sure the memory block cannot get onlined by
user space again before it gets removed.

To keep things simple, allow to only work on a single memory block.
