Subject[v5 4/6] mm/memory_hotplug: optimize probe routine
Date
When memory is hotplugged pages_correctly_reserved() is called to verify
that the added memory is present, this routine traverses through every
struct page and verifies that PageReserved() is set. This is a slow
operation especially if a large amount of memory is added.

Instead of checking every page, it is enough to simply check that the
section is present, has mapping (struct page array is allocated), and the
mapping is online.

In addition, we should not excpect that probe routine sets flags in struct
page, as the struct pages have not yet been initialized. The initialization
should be done in __init_single_page(), the same as during boot.
