I am sorry but it is absolutely unclear to me _what_ is the motivation
of the patch. Is this a performance optimization, correctness issue or
something else? Could you please restate what is the problem, why do you
think it has to be fixed at memblock layer and describe what the actual
fix is please?

From a quick glance you are trying to bend over the memblock API for
something that should be handled on a different layer.
