Subject[PATCH] mm/sparse: Fix kernel crash with pfn_section_valid check

With commit: d41e2f3bd546 ("mm/hotplug: fix hot remove failure in SPARSEMEM|!VMEMMAP case")
section_mem_map is set to NULL after depopulate_section_mem(). This
was done so that pfn_page() can work correctly with kernel config that disables
SPARSEMEM_VMEMMAP. With that config pfn_to_page does

__section_mem_map_addr(__sec) + __pfn;
where

static inline struct page *__section_mem_map_addr(struct mem_section *section)
{
unsigned long map = section->section_mem_map;
map &= SECTION_MAP_MASK;
return (struct page *)map;
}

Now with SPASEMEM_VMEMAP enabled, mem_section->usage->subsection_map is used to
check the pfn validity (pfn_valid()). Since section_deactivate release
mem_section->usage if a section is fully deactivated, pfn_valid() check after
a subsection_deactivate cause a kernel crash.

static inline int pfn_valid(unsigned long pfn)
{
...
return early_section(ms) || pfn_section_valid(ms, pfn);
}

where

static inline int pfn_section_valid(struct mem_section *ms, unsigned long pfn)
{
int idx = subsection_map_index(pfn);

return test_bit(idx, ms->usage->subsection_map);
}

Avoid this by clearing SECTION_HAS_MEM_MAP when mem_section->usage is freed.
