Subject: [PATCH v2 3/5] mm: memory_hotplug: memblock to track partially
 removed vmemmap mem

When hot-removing memory we need to free vmemmap memory.
However, depending on the memory is being removed, it might
not be always possible to free a full vmemmap page / huge-page
because part of it might still be used.

Commit ae9aae9eda2d ("memory-hotplug: common APIs to support page tables
hot-remove") introduced a workaround for x86
hot-remove, by which partially unused areas are filled with
the 0xFD constant. Full pages are only removed when fully
filled by 0xFDs.

This commit introduces a MEMBLOCK_UNUSED_VMEMMAP memblock flag, with
the goal of using it in place of 0xFDs. For now, this will be used for
the arm64 port of memory hot remove, but the idea is to eventually use
the same mechanism for x86 as well.
