[PATCH 4.14 007/122] mm/memory_hotplug: fix updating the node span

commit 656d571193262a11c2daa4012e53e4d645bbce56 upstream.

We recently started updating the node span based on the zone span to
avoid touching uninitialized memmaps.

Currently, we will always detect the node span to start at 0, meaning a
node can easily span too many pages. pgdat_is_empty() will still work
correctly if all zones span no pages. We should skip over all zones
without spanned pages and properly handle the first detected zone that
spans pages.

Unfortunately, in contrast to the zone span (/proc/zoneinfo), the node
span cannot easily be inspected and tested. The node span gives no real
guarantees when an architecture supports memory hotplug, meaning it can
easily contain holes or span pages of different nodes.

The node span is not really used after init on architectures that
support memory hotplug.

E.g., we use it in mm/memory_hotplug.c:try_offline_node() and in
mm/kmemleak.c:kmemleak_scan(). These users seem to be fine.
