Currently, architectures that use free_area_init() to initialize memory map
and node and zone structures need to calculate zone and hole sizes. We can
use free_area_init_nodes() instead and let it detect the zone boundaries
while the architectures will only have to supply the possible limits for
the zones.

This is causing some new warnings for me on boot on at least one non-MMU m68k target:

There were a couple of changes that cause this. The free_area_init()
now relies on memblock data and architectural limits for zone sizes
rather than on explisit pfns calculated by the arch code. I've update
motorola variant and missed coldfire. Angelo sent a fix for mcfmmu.c
[1] and I've updated it to include nommu as well

Subject: [PATCH] m68k: fix registration of memory regions with memblock

Commit 3f08a302f533 ("mm: remove CONFIG_HAVE_MEMBLOCK_NODE_MAP option")
introduced assumption that UMA systems have their memory at node 0 and
updated most of them, but it forgot nommu and coldfire variants of m68k.

The later change in free area initialization in commit fa3354e4ea39 ("mm:
free_area_init: use maximal zone PFNs rather than zone sizes") exposed that
and caused a lot of "BUG: Bad page state in process swapper" reports.

Even with this patch applied I am still seeing the same messages.


Using memblock_add_node() with nid = 0 to register memory banks solves the
