Agreed, that's what pfn_valid() and section_activate() expect.

"If we hot-add memory into such a section then we do not need to
populate the memmap and can simply reuse what is already there." - this
is the case when hot-adding sub-sections into partially populated early
sections, and has to be the case when re-hot-adding after hot-removing.

Acked-by: David Hildenbrand <david@redhat.com>


I am also not convinced that the complicated sparse_decode_mem_map()
handling in that function is required - ms->section_mem_map &
SECTION_MAP_MASK is sufficient for this use case of removing the memmap
of a full early section once empty.
