SubjectRe: 2.6.24-rc2-mm1 (memory hotplug x86_64/vmemmap fix)
Fixes for memory hotplug compile and .section handling.

This patch fixes following bugs
==
WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x1d07c): Section mismatch: reference to .init.text:f
ind_e820_area (between 'init_memory_mapping' and 'arch_add_memory')
WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0x946b5): Section mismatch: reference to .init.text:
__alloc_bootmem_node (between 'vmemmap_alloc_block' and 'vmemmap_pgd_populate')

ERROR: "memory_add_physaddr_to_nid" [drivers/acpi/acpi_memhotplug.ko] undefined!
make[1]: *** [__modpost
==

This patch does
1. export memory_add_physaddr_to_nid().
2. changes __init to __init_refok find_early_table_space() (x86/mm/init_64.c)
3. changes __init_refok to __meminit in mm/sparse.c (This is bug.)
4. add wrapper function to call bootmem allocator without warning.

After seeing "3", I thought simple __init_refok is dangerous and decided to
add wrapper function to call bootmem, is this style acceptable ?
