Subject[patch] numa: fix BUILD_BUG_ON for node_read_distance
node_read_distance() has a BUILD_BUG_ON() to prevent buffer overruns when
the number of nodes printed will exceed the buffer length.

Each node only needs four chars: three for distance (maximum distance is
255) and one for a seperating space or a trailing newline.
