Subject[06/44] numa: fix slab_node(MPOL_BIND)
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>

commit 800416f799e0723635ac2d720ad4449917a1481c upstream.

When a node contains only HighMem memory, slab_node(MPOL_BIND)
dereferences a NULL pointer.

[ This code seems to go back all the way to commit 19770b32609b: "mm:
filter based on a nodemask as well as a gfp_mask". Which was back in
April 2008, and it got merged into 2.6.26. - Linus ]
