Looking at all other architectures that allow ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE, we
already know x86 is fine, avr32 disables ARCH_DISCONTIGMEM_ENABLE entirely
because its code only brings online node 0, and tile already sets the bit
in N_NORMAL_MEMORY correctly when bringing a node online, probably because
it was introduced after the various node state masks were added in
7ea1530ab3fd back in October 2007.

So we're really only talking about alpha, ia64, m32r, m68k, and mips and
it only seems to matter when using CONFIG_SLUB, which isn't surprising
when greping for it:

$ grep -r N_NORMAL_MEMORY mm/*
mm/memcontrol.c: if (!node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY))
mm/memcontrol.c: if (!node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY))
mm/page_alloc.c: [N_NORMAL_MEMORY] = { { [0] = 1UL } },
mm/page_alloc.c: node_set_state(zone_to_nid(zone), N_NORMAL_MEMORY);
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY) {
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY) {
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY) {
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY) {
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY) {
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY) {
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY) {
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY) {
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY) {
mm/slub.c: for_each_node_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY)
Those memory controller occurrences only result in it passing a node id of
-1 to kmalloc_node() which means no specific node target, and that's fine
for DISCONTIGMEM since we don't care about any proximity between memory
ranges.

This should fix the remaining architectures so they can use CONFIG_SLUB,
but I hope it can be tested by the individual arch maintainers like you
did for parisc.
