After a general version of __weak memory_add_physaddr_to_nid implemented
and exported , it is no use exporting twice in arch directory even if
e,g, ia64/x86 have their specific version.

This is to suppress the modpost warning:
WARNING: modpost: vmlinux: 'memory_add_physaddr_to_nid' exported twice.
Previous export was in vmlinux

It's bad form to introduce a warning and then send a follow-up patch to
fix the warning.  Just fold this patch into patch 1/6.

Moreover, I think that patches 1-4 can be merged into one.
