Right now, ZONE_DEVICE memory is always set PG_reserved. We want to
change that.

KVM has this weird use case that you can map anything from /dev/mem
into the guest. pfn_valid() is not a reliable check whether the memmap
was initialized and can be touched. pfn_to_online_page() makes sure
that we have an initialized memmap. Note that ZONE_DEVICE memory is
never online (IOW, managed by the buddy).

Switching to pfn_to_online_page() keeps the existing behavior for
PFNs without a memmap and for ZONE_DEVICE memory. They are treated as
reserved and the page is not touched (e.g., to set it dirty or accessed).
