memory hotplug: Hot-add with sparsemem-vmemmap

This patch is to avoid panic when memory hot-add is executed with
sparsemem-vmemmap.  Current vmemmap-sparsemem code doesn't support memory
hot-add.  Vmemmap must be populated when hot-add.  This is for
2.6.23-rc2-mm2.

Todo: # Even if this patch is applied, the message "[xxxx-xxxx] potential
        offnode page_structs" is displayed. To allocate memmap on its node,
        memmap (and pgdat) must be initialized itself like chicken and
        egg relationship.

      # vmemmap_unpopulate will be necessary for followings.
         - For cancel hot-add due to error.
         - For unplug.
