Finally it takes about 55s to create 16400 memory entries.

Root cause: for x86_64, 2048g (with 2g hole at [2g,4g), and TOP2 will be 2050g), will have 16400 memory block.

find_memory_block/subsys_find_device_by_id will be expensive with that many entries.

Actually, we don't need to find that memory block for BOOT path.

Skip that finding make it get back to normal.

Also solved the delay with topology_init when sections_per_block is not 1.
