mm, memory_hotplug: initialize struct pages for the full memory section

If memory end is not aligned with the sparse memory section boundary,
the mapping of such a section is only partly initialized.  This may lead
to VM_BUG_ON due to uninitialized struct page access from
is_mem_section_removable() or test_pages_in_a_zone() function triggered
by memory_hotplug sysfs handlers:

Here are the the panic examples:
 CONFIG_DEBUG_VM=y
 CONFIG_DEBUG_VM_PGFLAGS=y

 kernel parameter mem=2050M
 --------------------------
 page:000003d082008000 is uninitialized and poisoned
 page dumped because: VM_BUG_ON_PAGE(PagePoisoned(p))
 Call Trace:

Fix the problem by initializing the last memory section of each zone in
memmap_init_zone() till the very end, even if it goes beyond the zone end.

: This has alwways been problem AFAIU.  It just went unnoticed because we
: have zeroed memmaps during allocation before f7f99100 ("mm: stop
: zeroing memory during allocation in vmemmap") and so the above test
: would simply skip these ranges as belonging to zone 0 or provided a
: garbage.

: So I guess we do care for post f7f99100 kernels mostly and
: therefore Fixes: f7f99100 ("mm: stop zeroing memory during
: allocation in vmemmap")
