Subject[patch v2] x86: increase CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT max to 10
Some larger systems require more than 512 nodes, so increase the maximum
CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT to 10 for a new max of 1024 nodes.

This was tested with numa=fake=64M on systems with more than 64GB of RAM.
A total of 1022 nodes were initialized.

Successfully builds with no additional warnings on x86_64 allyesconfig.

The BUILD_BUG_ON() in drivers/base/node.c has been fixed in Linus' -git
(see 12ee3c0), so CONFIG_NODES_SHIFT of 10 no longer fails to compile for
x86_64 allyesconfig.
