I'm pretty sure this is a bit broken. The overlap_memmap_init is going
to return memblock_region_memory_end_pfn instead of the start of the
next region. I think that is going to stick you in a mirrored region
without advancing in that case. You would also need to have that case
do a pfn++ before the continue;
