I think flat mem doesn't support memory-with-hole scenario.
In mm/Kconfig, it says
"
For systems that have holes in their physical address
spaces and for features like NUMA and memory hotplug,
choose "Sparse Memory"
"
IMHO, the memory-with-hole scenario should only be tested for sparse
mem but flat mem.

The generic pfn_valid() is just for non-mmu arches. Every architecture
with mmu defines their own pfn_valid().
This is supposed to be another separate patch that do we need to
implement a generic pfn_valid().
