Subject[patch 11/50] memory_hotplug: always initialize pageblock bitmap
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------

From: Heiko Carstens <heiko.carstens@de.ibm.com>

commit 76cdd58e558669366adfaded436fda01b30cce3e upstream

Trying to online a new memory section that was added via memory hotplug
sometimes results in crashes when the new pages are added via __free_page.
Reason for that is that the pageblock bitmap isn't initialized and hence
contains random stuff. That means that get_pageblock_migratetype()
returns also random stuff and therefore

list_add(&page->lru,
&zone->free_area[order].free_list[migratetype]);

in __free_one_page() tries to do a list_add to something that isn't even
necessarily a list.

This happens since 86051ca5eaf5e560113ec7673462804c54284456 ("mm: fix
usemap initialization") which makes sure that the pageblock bitmap gets
only initialized for pages present in a zone. Unfortunately for hot-added
memory the zones "grow" after the memmap and the pageblock memmap have
been initialized. Which means that the new pages have an unitialized
bitmap. To solve this the calls to grow_zone_span() and grow_pgdat_span()
are moved to __add_zone() just before the initialization happens.

The patch also moves the two functions since __add_zone() is the only
caller and I didn't want to add a forward declaration.
