Strange... it would only change behavior if valid_section() is true
when pfn_valid() is not or vice versa. They "should" be identical
because subsection-size == section-size on PowerPC, at least with the
current definition of SUBSECTION_SHIFT. I suspect maybe
free_area_init_nodes() is too late to call subsection_map_init() for
PowerPC.
