Why would that be a problem. There are dedicated locks for resizing.
True is that move_pfn_range_to_zone() manages the locks for pgdat/zone resizing,
but it also takes care of calling init_currently_empty_zone() in case the zone is empty.
Could not that be a problem if we take move_pfn_range_to_zone() out of the lock?
