[PATCH v3 0/4] optimize memory hotplug




Changelog:
	v2 - v3
	Fixed two issues found during testing
	Addressed Kbuild warning reports

	v1 - v2
	Added struct page poisoning checking in order to verify that
	struct pages are never accessed until initialized during memory
	hotplug

This patchset:
- Improves hotplug performance by eliminating a number of
struct page traverses during memory hotplug.

- Fixes some issues with hotplugging, where boundaries
were not properly checked. And on x86 block size was not properly aligned
with end of memory

- Also, potentially improves boot performance by eliminating condition from
  __init_single_page().

- Adds robustness by verifying that that struct pages are correctly
  poisoned when flags are accessed.

The following experiments were performed on Xeon(R) CPU E7-8895 v3 @ 2.60GHz
with 1T RAM:

booting in qemu with 960G of memory, time to initialize struct pages:

no-kvm:
	TRY1		TRY2
BEFORE:	39.433668	39.39705
AFTER:	36.903781	36.989329

with-kvm:
BEFORE:	10.977447	11.103164
AFTER:	10.929072	10.751885

Hotplug 896G memory:
no-kvm:
	TRY1		TRY2
BEFORE: 848.740000	846.910000
AFTER:  783.070000	786.560000

with-kvm:
	TRY1		TRY2
BEFORE: 34.410000	33.57
AFTER:	29.810000	29.580000
