True, but this patch replaces "/proc/kpageflags: do not use uninitialized
struct pages". If we initialize the uninitialized struct pages, no pfn walker
will need to be aware of them.

It seems that SECTION_IS_ONLINE and SECTION_MARKED_PRESENT can be used to
distinguish uninitialized struct pages if we can apply them to ZONE_DEVICE,
but that is no longer necessary with this approach.
