Subject[PATCH v4 2/4] mm/sparsemem: Defer the ms->section_mem_map clearing
Date
In sparse_init(), if CONFIG_SPARSEMEM_ALLOC_MEM_MAP_TOGETHER=y, system
will allocate one continuous memory chunk for mem maps on one node and
populate the relevant page tables to map memory section one by one. If
fail to populate for a certain mem section, print warning and its
->section_mem_map will be cleared to cancel the marking of being present.
Like this, the number of mem sections marked as present could become
less during sparse_init() execution.

Here just defer the ms->section_mem_map clearing if failed to populate
its page tables until the last for_each_present_section_nr() loop. This
is in preparation for later optimizing the mem map allocation.
