Subject[patch 20/46] memory hotplug: fix page_zone() calculation in test_pages_isolated()
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Gerald Schaefer <gerald.schaefer@de.ibm.com>

commit a70dcb969f64e2fa98c24f47854f20bf02ff0092 upstream.

My last bugfix here (adding zone->lock) introduced a new problem: Using
page_zone(pfn_to_page(pfn)) to get the zone after the for() loop is wrong.
pfn will then be >= end_pfn, which may be in a different zone or not
present at all. This may lead to an addressing exception in page_zone()
or spin_lock_irqsave().

Now I use __first_valid_page() again after the loop to find a valid page
for page_zone().
