Subject: [PATCH v2 2/4] mm/sparse: Optimize sparse_add_one_section()

Reorder the allocation of usemap and memmap since usemap allocation
is much simpler and easier. Otherwise hard work is done to make
memmap ready, then have to rollback just because of usemap allocation
failure.

And also check if section is present earlier. Then don't bother to
allocate usemap and memmap if yes.

Signed-off-by: Baoquan He <bhe@...hat.com>

v1->v2:
  Do section existence checking earlier to further optimize code.
