SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 2/5] mm: Teach pfn_to_online_page() to consider subsection validity

The changelog is not really clear on the underlying problem. It would
benefit from some clarification. What about something like this?
"
pfn_to_online_page is primarily used to filter out offline or fully
uninitialized pages. pfn_valid resp. online_section_nr have a coarse
per memory section granularity. If a section shared with a partially
offline memory (e.g. part of ZONE_DEVICE) then pfn_to_online_page would
lead to a false positive on some pfns. Fix this by adding
pfn_section_valid check which is subsection aware.
