mm/page_ext.c: check if page_ext is not prepared
online_page_ext() and page_ext_init() allocate page_ext for each section, but they do not allocate if the first PFN is !pfn_present(pfn) or !pfn_valid(pfn). Then section->page_ext remains as NULL. lookup_page_ext checks NULL only if CONFIG_DEBUG_VM is enabled. For a valid PFN, __set_page_owner will try to get page_ext through lookup_page_ext. Without CONFIG_DEBUG_VM lookup_page_ext will misuse NULL pointer as value 0. This incurrs invalid address access. This is the panic example when PFN 0x100000 is not valid but PFN 0x13FC00 is being used for page_ext. section->page_ext is NULL, get_entry returned invalid page_ext address as 0x1DFA000 for a PFN 0x13FC00. To avoid this panic, CONFIG_DEBUG_VM should be removed so that page_ext will be checked at all times.
