[RFC 06/16] mm/page_alloc: watch out zone range overlap

From: Joonsoo Kim
Date: Thu Feb 12 2015 - 02:33:58 EST

In the following patches, new zone, ZONE_CMA, will be introduced and
it would be overlapped with other zones. Currently, many places
iterating pfn range doesn't consider possibility of zone overlap and
this would cause a problem such as printing wrong statistics information.
To prevent this situation, this patch add some code to consider zone
overlapping before adding ZONE_CMA.

setup_zone_migrate_reserve() reserve some pages for specific zone so
should consider zone overlap.
