Subject[PATCH 3.2 36/70] mm/memory_hotplug.c: check for missing sections in test_pages_in_a_zone()
3.2.76-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andrew Banman <abanman@sgi.com>

commit 5f0f2887f4de9508dcf438deab28f1de8070c271 upstream.

test_pages_in_a_zone() does not account for the possibility of missing
sections in the given pfn range. pfn_valid_within always returns 1 when
CONFIG_HOLES_IN_ZONE is not set, allowing invalid pfns from missing
sections to pass the test, leading to a kernel oops.

Wrap an additional pfn loop with PAGES_PER_SECTION granularity to check
for missing sections before proceeding into the zone-check code.

This also prevents a crash from offlining memory devices with missing
sections. Despite this, it may be a good idea to keep the related patch
'[PATCH 3/3] drivers: memory: prohibit offlining of memory blocks with
missing sections' because missing sections in a memory block may lead to
other problems not covered by the scope of this fix.
