Yes. RESERVED based is a big waste of mem_map space. The add areas
are marked as RESERVED during boot and then later onlined during add.
It might be ok. I will play with tomorrow. I might just need to
call add_active_range in the right spot :)

I see e820_register_active_regions is acting as a filter against the e820

Things get clear :)

Should be ok.

See below. I do my e820_register_active_area as an else to to if
(hotplug.....!reserve) and the prink is easy to sort out.

I see your pfn are in base 10. Looks like it considers the last
addres to be a present page. (off by one thing).

Thanks,
