On PowerPC, the address ranges allocated to OpenCAPI LPC memory
are allocated from firmware. These address ranges may be higher
than what older kernels permit, as we increased the maximum
permissable address in commit 4ffe713b7587
("powerpc/mm: Increase the max addressable memory to 2PB"). It is
possible that the addressable range may change again in the

In this scenario, we end up with a bogus section returned from
__section_nr (see the discussion on the thread "mm: Trigger bug on
if a section is not found in __section_nr").

Adding a check here means that we fail early and have an
opportunity to handle the error gracefully, rather than rumbling
on and potentially accessing an incorrect section.

Further discussion is also on the thread ("powerpc: Perform a bounds
check in arch_add_memory")
