sparse-vmemmap: specify vmemmap population range in bytes
The sparse code, when asking the architecture to populate the vmemmap, specifies the section range as a starting page and a number of pages. This is an awkward interface, because none of the arch-specific code actually thinks of the range in terms of 'struct page' units and always translates it to bytes first. In addition, later patches mix huge page and regular page backing for the vmemmap. For this, they need to call vmemmap_populate_basepages() on sub-section ranges with PAGE_SIZE and PMD_SIZE in mind. But these are not necessarily multiples of the 'struct page' size and so this unit is too coarse. Just translate the section range into bytes once in the generic sparse code, then pass byte ranges down the stack.
