Subject[RFC 08/16] power: watch out zone range overlap
In the following patches, new zone, ZONE_CMA, will be introduced and
it would be overlapped with other zones. Currently, many places
iterating pfn range doesn't consider possibility of zone overlap and
this would cause a problem such as printing wrong statistics information.
To prevent this situation, this patch add some code to consider zone
overlapping before adding ZONE_CMA.

mark_free_pages() check and mark free status of page on the zone. Since
we iterate pfn to unmark free bit and we iterate buddy list directly
to mark free bit, if we don't check page's zone and mark it as non-free,
following buddy checker missed the page which is not on this zone and
we can get false free status.
