No, I would just reply to the email notification you received when the 
patch went into -mm saying that the changelog should be adjusted to read 
something like

        online_pages() is only compiled for CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG_SPARSE,
        so there is no need to support CONFIG_FLATMEM code within it.

        This patch removes code that is never used.
