Subject[PATCH 4/6] change alloc function in vmemmap_alloc_block
Date
if node_state is N_HIGH_MEMORY, node doesn't have -1.
It means node's validity check is unnecessary.
So we can use alloc_pages_exact_node instead of alloc_pages_node.
It could avoid comparison and branch as 6484eb3e2a81807722 tried.
