mm, memory_hotplug: do not associate hotadded memory to zones until online
The current memory hotplug implementation relies on having all the struct pages associate with a zone/node during the physical hotplug phase (arch_add_memory->__add_pages->__add_section->__add_zone). In the vast majority of cases this means that they are added to ZONE_NORMAL. This has been so since 9d99aaa3 ("[PATCH] x86_64: Support memory hotadd without sparsemem") and it wasn't a big deal back then because movable onlining didn't exist yet. Much later memory hotplug wanted to (ab)use ZONE_MOVABLE for movable onlining 511c2aba ("mm, memory-hotplug: dynamic configure movable memory and portion memory") and then things got more complicated. Rather than reconsidering the zone association which was no longer needed (because the memory hotplug already depended on SPARSEMEM) a convoluted semantic of zone shifting has been developed. Only the currently last memblock or the one adjacent to the zone_movable can be onlined movabl...
