Subject[PATCH] mm/sparse: Fix flags overlap in section_mem_map
Date
The section_mem_map member of struct mem_section stores some flags and
the address of struct page array of the mem_section.

Additionally the node id of the mem_section is stored during early boot,
where the struct page array has not been allocated. In other words, the
higher bits of section_mem_map are used for two purpose, and the node id
should be clear properly after the early boot.

Currently the node id field is overlapped with the flag field and cannot
be clear properly. That overlapped bits would then be treated as
mem_section flags and may lead to unexpected side effects.

Define SECTION_NID_SHIFT using order_base_2 to ensure that the node id
field always locates after flags field. That's why the overlap occurs -
forgetting to increase SECTION_NID_SHIFT when adding new mem_section
flag.
