[PATCH v4 0/4] arm64: drop pfn_valid_within() and simplify pfn_valid()

These patches aim to remove CONFIG_HOLES_IN_ZONE and essentially hardwire
pfn_valid_within() to 1.

The idea is to mark NOMAP pages as reserved in the memory map and restore
the intended semantics of pfn_valid() to designate availability of struct
page for a pfn.

With this the core mm will be able to cope with the fact that it cannot use
NOMAP pages and the holes created by NOMAP ranges within MAX_ORDER blocks
will be treated correctly even without the need for pfn_valid_within.

The patches are boot tested on qemu-system-aarch64.

I beleive it would be best to route these via mmotm tree.

* rebase on v5.13-rc1

* Fix minor issues found by Anshuman
* Freshen up the declaration of pfn_valid() to make it consistent with
* Add more Acked-by and Reviewed-by tags, thanks Anshuman and David

v2: Link: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20210421065108.1987-1-rppt@xxxxxxxxxx
* Add check for PFN overflow in pfn_is_map_memory()
* Add Acked-by and Reviewed-by tags, thanks David.

v1: Link: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20210420090925.7457-1-rppt@xxxxxxxxxx
* Add comment about the semantics of pfn_valid() as Anshuman suggested
* Extend comments about MEMBLOCK_NOMAP, per Anshuman
* Use pfn_is_map_memory() name for the exported wrapper for
memblock_is_map_memory(). It is still local to arch/arm64 in the end
because of header dependency issues.
