memblock updates

Hi folks !

Here's my current branch. This time build tested on sparc(64), arm,
powerpc and sh. I don't have a microblaze compiler at hand.

Not much difference from the previous one. Off the top of my head:

- Added the memblock_is_region_reserved() fix at the beginning
(I'll send that to Linus separately if we decide this series
shouldn't go in 2.6.36)
- Split the patch adding the new accessors into separate patches
for adding the accessors, converting each arch, and removing
the old accessors. This makes it clearer, easier to review,
etc... I added a couple new accessors for ARM.
- Added the ARM updates based on what's upstream now (involves
new memblock_is_memory() and memblock_is_memory_region() for
use by ARM, nothing fancy there).

So very little changes. I haven't changed the init sections so
the warnings reported by Steven are still there. I will fix them
as an addon patch as I don't believe there's any actual breakage.

Now, what do you guys want to do with this now ? I can ask Linus
to pull now or we can wait until the end of the merge window and
put it into -next for another round...
