[19.04 FEAT] zone awareness for lsmem / chmem - util-linux

Bug Description

Kernel version 4.12 will change the default zone for hotplug memory to the zone-normal. To add memory to the zone movable "online_movable" needs to be echoed into the state attribute of a memory segment.
Currently chmem always echos "online" to enable a memory segment.
This feature adds an option to lsmem and chmem to distinguish between zone-movable and zone-normal.

Business Case:
Ensure memory hotplug with enhanced upstream functionality

Available with util-linux 2.32.

Due to integration of 2.33 already in 19.04, this feature is only for completness
