VMware observed a performance regression during memmap init on their platform,
and bisected to commit 73a6e474cb376 ("mm: memmap_init: iterate over memblock
regions rather that check each PFN") to cause it.

Before the commit:

  [0.033176] Normal zone: 1445888 pages used for memmap
  [0.033176] Normal zone: 89391104 pages, LIFO batch:63
  [0.035851] ACPI: PM-Timer IO Port: 0x448

With commit

  [0.026874] Normal zone: 1445888 pages used for memmap
  [0.026875] Normal zone: 89391104 pages, LIFO batch:63
  [2.028450] ACPI: PM-Timer IO Port: 0x448

The root cause is the current memmap defer init doesn't work as expected.
Before, memmap_init_zone() was used to do memmap init of one whole zone, to
initialize all low zones of one numa node, but defer memmap init of the
last zone in that numa node. However, since commit 73a6e474cb376, function
memmap_init() is adapted to iterater over memblock regions inside one zone,
then call memmap_init_zone() to do memmap init for each region.

E.g, on VMware's system, the memory layout is as below, there are two memory
regions in node 2. The current code will mistakenly initialize the whole 1st
region [mem 0xab00000000-0xfcffffffff], then do memmap defer to iniatialize
only one memmory section on the 2nd region [mem 0x10000000000-0x1033fffffff].
In fact, we only expect to see that there's only one memory section's memmap
initialized. That's why more time is costed at this time.

[    0.008842] ACPI: SRAT: Node 0 PXM 0 [mem 0x00000000-0x0009ffff]
[    0.008842] ACPI: SRAT: Node 0 PXM 0 [mem 0x00100000-0xbfffffff]
[    0.008843] ACPI: SRAT: Node 0 PXM 0 [mem 0x100000000-0x55ffffffff]
[    0.008844] ACPI: SRAT: Node 1 PXM 1 [mem 0x5600000000-0xaaffffffff]
[    0.008844] ACPI: SRAT: Node 2 PXM 2 [mem 0xab00000000-0xfcffffffff]
[    0.008845] ACPI: SRAT: Node 2 PXM 2 [mem 0x10000000000-0x1033fffffff]

Now, let's add a parameter 'zone_end_pfn' to memmap_init_zone() to pass
down the read zone end pfn so that defer_init() can use it to judge whether
defer need be taken in zone wide.
