Subject[Patch](memory hotplug)Allocate usemap on the section with pgdat (take 3)

Here is take 3 for usemap allocation on pgdat section.

If there is any trouble, please let me know.

If no trouble, please apply.

Thanks.

---
Usemaps are allocated on the section which has pgdat by this.

Because usemap size is very small, many other sections usemaps
are allocated on only one page. If a section has usemap, it
can't be removed until removing other sections.
This dependency is not desirable for memory removing.

Pgdat has similar feature. When a section has pgdat area, it
must be the last section for removing on the node.
So, if section A has pgdat and section B has usemap for section A,
Both sections can't be removed due to dependency each other.

To solve this issue, this patch collects usemap on same
section with pgdat as much as possible.
If other sections doesn't have any dependency, this section will
be able to be removed finally.

Change log of take 3.
- Change dependency message and comment.
(Thanks! > Andy Whitcroft-san)
Change log of take 2.
- This feature becomes effective only when CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE is on.
If hotremove is off, this feature is not necessary.
- Allow allocation on other section if alloc_bootmem_section() fails.
This removes previous regression.
- Show message if allocation on same section fails.
