Looking more in details, it looks like everything is done to live with
sparsemap_buf NULL, all functions using it check it so having it NULL
shouldn't imply a panic I believe, see code below.

static void *sparsemap_buf __meminitdata;
static void *sparsemap_buf_end __meminitdata;

static void __init sparse_buffer_init(unsigned long size, int nid)
{
WARN_ON(sparsemap_buf); /* forgot to call sparse_buffer_fini()? */
sparsemap_buf =
memblock_alloc_try_nid_raw(size, PAGE_SIZE,
__pa(MAX_DMA_ADDRESS),
MEMBLOCK_ALLOC_ACCESSIBLE, nid);
sparsemap_buf_end = sparsemap_buf + size;
}

static void __init sparse_buffer_fini(void)
{
unsigned long size = sparsemap_buf_end - sparsemap_buf;

if (sparsemap_buf && size > 0)
memblock_free_early(__pa(sparsemap_buf), size);
sparsemap_buf = NULL;
}

void * __meminit sparse_buffer_alloc(unsigned long size)
{
void *ptr = NULL;

if (sparsemap_buf) {
ptr = PTR_ALIGN(sparsemap_buf, size);
if (ptr + size > sparsemap_buf_end)
ptr = NULL;
else
sparsemap_buf = ptr + size;
}
return ptr;
}
