You cannot pass an arbitrary number to node data since NODE_DATA may do a
simple array lookup.

Check for node < nr_node_ids first.

pgdat->node_id != nodeid? Sounds like something you should BUG() on.


struct ia64_node_data {
short active_cpu_count;
short node;
struct pglist_data *pg_data_ptrs[MAX_NUMNODES];

* Given a node id, return a pointer to the pg_data_t for the node.
* NODE_DATA - should be used in all code not related to system
* initialization. It uses pernode data structures to minimize
* offnode memory references. However, these structure are not
* present during boot. This macro can be used once cpu_init
* completes.
#define NODE_DATA(nid) (local_node_data->pg_data_ptrs[nid])

x86_64 also does

#define NODE_DATA(nid) (node_data[nid])
