Deferred struct page initialization issue vs memblocks

From: Mika PenttilÃ

deferred_init_memmap() uses for_each_mem_pfn_range() which (in x86)
uses memblocks. Because of CONFIG_ARCH_DISCARD_MEMBLOCK, the memblock
infos have already been freed to page allocator (in
free_low_memory_core_early()), which happens before

Maybe the fix is not to allow DISCARD_MEMBLOCK in deferred case, or
discard memblock infos later.
