[RFC PATCH 2/4] x86/setup: parse acpi to get hotplug info before init_mem_mapping()

From: Pingfan Liu
Date: Mon Jan 07 2019 - 03:25:48 EST

At present, memblock bottom-up allocation can help us against stamping over
movable node in very high probability. But if the hotplug info has already
been parsed, the memblock allocator can step around the movable node by
itself. This patch pushes the parsing step forward, just ahead of where,
the memblock allocator can work. Later in this series, the bottom-up
allocation style can be removed on x86_64.
