Hi, this is a fix patch. Sorry for my carelessness.

I'll post next add-on patch against the next -mm which will be shipped.
What I have now are
- pfn_valid() optimization
- memory hotplug support

then, performance comparison stage will come.

(*)robust memory hot add patch (we are planning) may use this vmem_map for
avoiding allocating hot-added-memory's mem_map from existing memory.

Thanks,
-Kame

== patch from here ===

Fixes #error condition.

This check's meaning is:
--for 32bits--
4 (struct page's alignment) * PAGES_PER_SECTION % PAGE_SIZE == 0
--for 64bits--
8 (struct page's alignment) * PAGES_PER_SECTION % PAGE_SIZE == 0

Then, vmem_map is aligned per section.

This check may be removed if I (or someone) can write clean patch
for not aligned vmem_map.
