After bisecting, the acpi-acpi_numa_init-build-fix.patch patch seems
to be causing the kernel panic during the bootup. Reverting the patch helps
in booting up the machine without the panic.

commit 5dc90c0b2d4bd0127624bab67cec159b2c6c4daf
Author: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
Date: Thu May 1 09:51:47 2008 +0000
acpi-acpi_numa_init-build-fix

x86.git testing found the following build error on latest -git:

drivers/acpi/numa.c: In function 'acpi_numa_init':
drivers/acpi/numa.c:226: error: 'NR_NODE_MEMBLKS' undeclared (first use in this function)
drivers/acpi/numa.c:226: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
drivers/acpi/numa.c:226: error: for each function it appears in.)

with this config:

http://redhat.com/~mingo/misc/config-Wed_Apr_30_22_42_42_CEST_2008.bad

i suspect we dont want SRAT parsing when CONFIG_HAVE_ARCH_PARSE_SRAT
is unset - but the fix looks a bit ugly. Perhaps we should define
NR_NODE_MEMBLKS even in this case and just let the code fall back
to some sane behavior?
