SubjectRe: Bug: Discontigmem virt_to_page() [Alpha,ARM,Mips64?]

That's true, but m68k isn't using config_discontigmem. :)

See below, the patch is almost complete:
- the only other free_area_init_core() needs to be updated
- the virt_to_page(phys_to_virt()) sequence could be replaced now with
pfn_page()

That's just how the virtual<->physical conversion is implemented.

It's not really new, you only have to take care, that you don't iterate
with the physical address over a pgdat, this is what the patch below
fixes, the rest can be hidden in the arch macros and no special config
options is needed.
