With this fix microblazeel and s390 worked for me and also Christian had
reported that s390 is fixed.

microblaze (big endian) works because its defconfig does not enable HIGHMEM
while little endian does.

ARC is mentioned because it is the only arch that may have ZONE_HIGHMEM
and ZONE_NORMAL and this patch was required to consolidate
free_area_init* variants.
