Yes, that's the real culprit. ZONE_DEVICE/devmem pages are never online
(SECTION_IS_ONLINE). The terminology "online" only applies to pages that
were given to the buddy. And as we support sup-section hotadd for
devmem, we cannot easily make use of the section flag it. I already
proposed somewhere to convert SECTION_IS_ONLINE to a subsection bitmap
and call it something like pfn_active().

pfn_online() would then be "pfn_active() && zone != ZONE_DEVICE". And we
could use pfn_active() everywhere to test for initialized memmaps (well,
besides some special cases like device reserved memory that does not
span full sub-sections). Until now, nobody volunteered and I have other
things to do.
