Subject[PATCH 1/2] flatmem split out memory model
pfn_to_nid is memory model specific

The pfn_to_nid() call is memory model specific. It represents the
locality identifier for the memory passed. Classically this would
be a NUMA node, but not a chunk of memory under DISCONTIGMEM.

The SPARSEMEM and FLATMEM memory model non-NUMA versions of
pfn_to_nid() are folded together under NEED_MULTIPLE_NODES, while
DISCONTIGMEM has its own optimisation. This is all very confusing.

This patch splits out each implementation of pfn_to_nid() so that we
can see them and the optimisations to each.
