[PATCH: 012/017](RFC) Memory hotplug for new nodes v.3. (rebuild zonelists after online pages)

From: Yasunori Goto <y-goto_at_jp.fujitsu.com>
Date: 2006-03-09 00:42:44
In current code, zonelist is considered to be build once, no modification.
But MemoryHotplug can add new zone/pgdat. It must be updated.

This patch modifies build_all_zonelists(). 
By this, build_all_zonelist() can reconfig pgdat's zonelists.

To update them safety, this patch use stop_machine_run().
Other cpus don't touch among updating them by using it.

In previous version (V2), kernel updated them after zone initialization.
But present_page of its new zone is still 0, because online_page()
is not called yet at this time. 
Build_zonelists() checks present_pages to find present zone.
It was too early. So, I changed it after online_pages().
