Hi Wei
Paul firstly submit a commit b92df1de5 to improve the loop in
memmap_init_zone.
And Daniel tried to fix a bug_on panic issue on X86 in commit
864b75f9d6b because
there is evidence that this bug_on was caused by b92df1de5 [1].

But things didn't get better, 864b75f9d6b caused booting hang issue on
arm{64} [2]
So maintainer decided to reverted both b92df1de5 and 864b75f9d6b

Please get more information about the reason why using
CONFIG_HAVE_MEMBLOCK in
d49d47e mm: page_alloc: skip over regions of invalid pfns on UMA

And this commit is dependent on b92df1de, so it is also reverted.

Cheers,
Jia
