I think you are right. however I doubt m68k need to care memoryless node check.
probably following patch just work.

------------------------------------
diff --git a/arch/m68k/mm/init_mm.c b/arch/m68k/mm/init_mm.c
--- a/arch/m68k/mm/init_mm.c
+++ b/arch/m68k/mm/init_mm.c
@@ -59,6 +59,8 @@ void __init m68k_setup_node(int node)
       }
 #endif
       pg_data_map[node].bdata = bootmem_node_data + node;
       node_set_online(node);
+      node_set_state(node, N_NORMAL_MEMORY);

Maybe, the correct solution is to use CONFIG_ARCH_POPULATES_NODE_MAP feature.
the usage is simple, adding add_active_range() and replacing
free_area_init_node() with free_area_init_nodes().

Thanks.
