Commands seem to be missing above?

Ditto.

I'm looking at your current mmotm tree branch, which looks like this:

+ * Return true if [start_pfn, start_pfn + nr_pages) range has a non-mpty
+ * intersection with the given zone
+ */
+static inline bool zone_intersects(struct zone *zone,
+ unsigned long start_pfn, unsigned long nr_pages)
+{
+ if (zone_is_empty(zone))
+ return false;
+ if (zone->zone_start_pfn <= start_pfn && start_pfn < zone_end_pfn(zone))
+ return true;
+ if (start_pfn + nr_pages > zone->zone_start_pfn)
+ return true;

A false positive is possible here, when start_pfn >= zone_end_pfn(zone)?

+ return false;
+}

Is this last TODO a blocker, unlike the others?

Nit: This !zone currently cannot happen.
