Subject[22/71] mm: use alloc_bootmem_node_nopanic() on really needed path
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Yinghai Lu <yinghai@kernel.org>

commit 8f389a99b652aab5b42297280bd94d95933ad12f upstream.

Stefan found nobootmem does not work on his system that has only 8M of
RAM. This causes an early panic:

BIOS-provided physical RAM map:
BIOS-88: 0000000000000000 - 000000000009f000 (usable)
BIOS-88: 0000000000100000 - 0000000000840000 (usable)
bootconsole [earlyser0] enabled
Notice: NX (Execute Disable) protection missing in CPU or disabled in BIOS!
DMI not present or invalid.
last_pfn = 0x840 max_arch_pfn = 0x100000
init_memory_mapping: 0000000000000000-0000000000840000
8MB LOWMEM available.
mapped low ram: 0 - 00840000
low ram: 0 - 00840000
Zone PFN ranges:
DMA 0x00000001 -> 0x00001000
Normal empty
Movable zone start PFN for each node
early_node_map[2] active PFN ranges
0: 0x00000001 -> 0x0000009f
0: 0x00000100 -> 0x00000840

It turns out that we should ignore the low limit of 16M.

Use alloc_bootmem_node_nopanic() in this case.
