We have a similar situation on HP Intergrity [ia64-based] platforms.
The platform supports cache-line interleaved memory or cell local
memory--a firmware configuration option. Even configured for "100% Cell
Local Memory [CLM]", we have a small amount of interleaved memory at
physical address zero. [I think the DIG spec may require this? CLM
shows up at some ridiculously high physical address.] Here, "small
amount" means ~512MB for a 4 node system and ~1G for a 16node system.
This shows up as the only DMA memory [below 4G] on the system.

The interleaved memory shows up as a pseudo-node "N" in an N-node
platform. I.e., nodes 0-N-1 represent the real physical nodes and node
N is the pseudo-node containing only interleaved memory [no cpus nor
IO]. The firmware tells us, via the SLIT, that the interleaved
pseudo-node is closer to all physical nodes than any other real
node--apparently based on the theory that the average latency is less
because it contains some local memory. This means that with the current
zone ordering, the DMA zone ends up as the second zone in each node's
Normal zonelist. Thus, we are subject to the same DMA zone exhaustion
that this patch addresses.

I have tested the patch on our platforms and it appears to work as
advertised.

Thanks, Kame!

Question: why remove the comments below? Especially the ones that
attempt to explain the rationale for the logic?
