Subject[RESEND PATCH] mm/hotplug: don't reset pagetype flags for offline
The commit f1dd2cd13c4b ("mm, memory_hotplug: do not associate hotadded
memory to zones until online") introduced move_pfn_range_to_zone() which
calls memmap_init_zone() during onlining a memory block.
memmap_init_zone() will reset pagetype flags and makes migrate type to

However, in __offline_pages(), it also call undo_isolate_page_range()
after offline_isolated_pages() to do the same thing. Due to
the commit 2ce13640b3f4 ("mm: __first_valid_page skip over offline
pages") changed __first_valid_page() to skip offline pages,
undo_isolate_page_range() here just waste CPU cycles looping around the
offlining PFN range while doing nothing, because __first_valid_page()
will return NULL as offline_isolated_pages() has already marked all
memory sections within the pfn range as offline via

Also, after calling the "useless" undo_isolate_page_range() here, it
reaches the point of no returning by notifying MEM_OFFLINE. Those pages
will be marked as MIGRATE_MOVABLE again once onlining. In addition, fix
an incorrect comment along the way.
