I tested and found your patch doesn't work.
It seems because all valid page struct is not initialized.
(By pfn_valid(), a page struct is valid if it exists regardless of zones.)

How about below ? I think this is simple.
Tested and worked well.

==
usemap must be initialized only when pfn is within zone.
If not, it corrupts memory.

After intialization, usemap is used for only pfn in valid range.
(We have to init memmap even in invalid range.)
